Wow! I just saw this thread and am speechless. I've been away from TC for a long time due to work and other obligations and didn't know Kate was sick. While we didn't know Kate well, we did know her and we are deeply saddened to hear of her passing. This is such a sobering reminder of how precious life really is. If you have a special someone in your life, let them know just how much they mean to you while you still can. RIP Kate!

It's so touching to see how much Kate meant to so many people. I was very lucky and feel very honored that I was able to visit her and help her out and to get to know her so well.

The San Diego tiki chops meant so much to Kate. She was so proud to have been to them all.

Kate used to talk to me about different people from TC, and how she thought that they were just acquaintances. Over the last year, between all the cards, the posts here and the visits, she really realized how much she was loved.

Sorry these are sideways.

I didn't ever have a chance to meet you Kate, but you must have been quite a special person, judging from all the love being shown here. My prayers and thoughts go out to Kate's friends and family.

Here you go Mieko.

Boris and I visited with her on Tuesday and had the pleasure of meeting her Dad, brother, and her sister Susan. Kate was pretty weak, and because of the drugs couldn't really speak or keep her eyes open for long. She said something, but it was too hard to hear her well, and it sounded like she said "Not sure", and tried to repeat it a couple of times. We couldn't figure out which question or statement she was responding to. It wasn't until later that night when I was home I realized she was saying "Nice shirt" because she recognized I was wearing the Hawaiian shirt she gave to me at the shirt swap at Tiki Oasis a couple of years ago. She had picked it out for me at Oasis from those she had brought with her, she held it up and said "This will look good on you", and shoved it into my hands. It's always been my favorite Hawaiian shirt.

What a great and kind spirited lady. I'll miss her very much.

I was at Kirby's when I got the news, and he said "This is probably the first loss of an active TC member"....
Looking at all the pictures now, it really hits home...
Kate, thanx for the passion and contributions you brought to this community.
The mark you left here is indelible, and I'm glad to have had the pleasure of knowing you.
Aloha Oe' Tiki Kate.

That's very sad. I feel bad, even if I have never met you, but heard a lot of good things about you.
you'll be missed a lot.
