I was going to respond to this, by saying how much I hate this thread and what it says. Had fate followed a kinder course, Kate would still be here, we would still be going about our daily routines, and the server space that now holds this thread would have been occupied by something mundane or silly.

But after reading the warm and loving comments by the TC community, it also crystallized the impact Kate had on lots of people. I only knew her through her posts, but the positive impression she left on people is indisputable.

She isn't really gone. She is alive within each and every person who had the pleasure to have known her.

My appologies for keeping these embers alive a while longer, but I finally located something I had wondered about. Were Kate's hands among those featured in a TC post from 2008 showing just about everybody's tiki artist hands? If so, that would be a nice look back to honor Kate. As it turns out, her hands are among them! And now that I look back it is poetry in retrograde.

Tiki Central - Show of Hands by Babalu

Don't you think she'd like the kind of joining of hands that this old post says in its own sweet way? Hope so.




I know. Spell check.

Hee hee! Sweet, tikified Kate okole! Thanks for that link, Gnomon, that gave me a nice big smile.

I've gotten so much pleasure from the remembrances here -- thank you to everyone for taking a moment to share with everyone. It's like a bit of Kate Archaeology, and it sure seems like something she'd get a kick out of.

My remembrance comes in the form of a website. I started work on it before she passed, and was able to tell her about it. I originally wanted her to be able to see it and enjoy it, it was supposed to be a great big going away gift. But she passed too quickly.

Today I launched her site. It's called
Viva Kate!

If you had the pleasure of meeting her in life, I hope you enjoy this site. If you didn't, it's not too late to get to know her.

Here's my Humu Kon Tiki post about Viva Kate: http://blog.humuhumu.com/2010/10/20/viva-kate

(Mahalo to Bora Boris, Squid and Mr. NoNaMe for their help with facts & photos!)
