Go Kart Fundraiser 2-12-12
Today we went to Sykart and go kart place in Tukwila. The Alpha Romeo Car Club was putting on a race with 10 teams. It was an annual fun day turned into a fundraiser for our family. Local companies donated t-shirts, trophies, food, drinks, prizes, auction items, cash and a beautiful banner. Some of these people don’t even know our family and yet they gladly gave. Our community, friends, family and strangers have come together to take care of our family. It is a wonderful feeling to have so many people care. Our pain is deep but the love we have been shown helps ease the pain. Knowing that we have been given time to grieve and not have to worry so about financial stuff helps take away some of the stress. We are so appreciative to all of the people who have helped us. Thank you!
Tomorrow will be Kathryn’s cremation. This will be the hardest day yet. As this will be the final day that her body is on this earth. Even though I know her spirit left her body some time ago, it will still be difficult. It makes this all final. Her spirit has been with me. I know this because I continue to smell that sweet smell. I hope I smell it every day of my life. It comforts me.
Take Care and Good Night

2.) If you don’t know what a Luminaria is you can bring a vase of flowers for the tables – but make sure it has a bright bow around the vase. Let Carol (Mom) know if you are bringing a vase of flowers so we can keep track of how many.
