aOur Angel is gone 2-2-12
Kathryn had a very peaceful sleep last night. Early this morning her breaths became smaller and smaller. With all of us Dad (Scott), Mom (Carol), Brother (Richard) and Grandma Ann by her side she slowly, quietly and peacefully just fell asleep. We didn’t have to use any medications or feel like she was in pain or suffering. She just quietly drifted off to sleep.
We called our neighbor the Lakewood Fire Chief. They arrived within minutes. The medics and fire truck have to come to the house by law. They took a monitor reading, offered to get rid of our sharps container and medications. That was nice that they did that for us. They officially gave the time of death at 9:38 am but we know she really passed at 8:18 am. The police had to come too since they knew we would have had special drugs in the house for her. They do this to announce over the radio that they took them away so if any crazies are listening they will not come to our home and try to get drugs.
We stayed with Kathryn for a while and said our good byes. Finally the funeral home come pick her up around noon. They were very good and allowed us as much time as we needed with her before they took her. They kept her little face visible to us as they wheeled her out. They will clean her up and we will have a viewing. Mountain View Funeral home will be the one doing our arrangements. Kathryn told me that she didn’t want anyone to wear black, “NO BLACK AT MY FUNERAL.” So remember this when you get the notice of the celebration of her wonderful but way too short life.
She was the spirit we all wish we had. She was a young woman but had the enthusiasm and joy for life that is only found in a child. We called her child often. When you think of Disney Land, Christmas, Camp Goodtimes, Glitter, Bond Fires, Movies in the back yard, Star Bucks, and other fun things, think of Kathryn. She loved everyone unconditionally and found good in everyone.
We will all miss her so much. There will always be a big hole that will never be filled. We will be one team member short. She may have been little in size but she was very Big as a team member.
