Kate,
I'm so thankful to have known you. I enjoyed all our good conversations at the chops, and different occasions through the years. We shared many laughs, and tears along the way too. I admired your passion for everything you loved, and the strength that you had as a woman. I feel priveledged to have been able to help be there for you even if it was just a small part. I'm so proud that you have taught us all such a lesson on how to live life, and to be strong. I'll really miss you. Until we meet again...

Love,
Christina

Urban archeologist is right, and what a dedicated one! She is probably the only person who went fully thru with this:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=29661&forum=1&vpost=405218

She called it silly, but it really proves how much she loved to just go out there and find Tiki temples and their remnants. She had been to all of them, and then some. She really had the bug. Boris, you were lucky to accompany her on many of her expeditions.

I have been watching this thread from the begining, but I really had no idea what to say.

This is heartbreaking.

I suppose I had deluded myself into thinking that this was something that she could beat. She certainly gave it her best try, and for that you have to admire and respect her. But when I saw the word "hospice" in Buzzy's earlier post my heart sank. And then just a few days later she was gone. I can only hope that her suffering was not too severe and that she has found some peace.

Well, if there is a tiki heaven, or at the very least tikis in heaven, then Kate has her hands full there hobnobbing with Captain Cook to King Kamehahmeha to Donn Beach to Eli Hedley. I hope she is learning cocktail tips from Don Beach and Ray Buhen and has probably already organized a Chop.

I hope to see you again one day, Kate.

Kate always made me laugh, I never saw her in a bad mood. Can't honestly say that about too many people, including myself . We will miss you Kate honey, that is for sure.

I am saddened by this news. Was hoping to meet her someday


"Kate, I know you're in a better place. My mom passed on Monday the 20th, so I know you're in GREAT company.

You are at peace now, and to all those who knew you...
THAT is truly a blessing.

in Love and light,
Rose(red)Marston

I just read about Kate's passing.
I didnt know her well but I got the chance to meet her at monkeymans chop about a year ago.
We sat next to each other on the porch and talked for a few hours while carving.
She was a very nice and outgoing person.
My condolences to her friends and family.

Just read this about Kate. I'm shocked and feel so sad to hear this news. Kate was always so fun to be around and a true go-getter if I ever met one. I am happy to have known her and feel sad that I didn't spend more time getting to know her even more. She will be missed. My condolences go to her family. Awful news... just awful.

I always enjoyed her shirt thread so much. She really was good at the hunt and sharing her finds with everyone. Thanks to all who have shared their memories and photos of Tiki Kate. My condolences to all of you who knew and loved her.
