Our dedication to Kate:

If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.

For life and death are one, even as the river and sea are one.

In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond; and like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.

Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.

And only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Author unknown

We are very sad and will miss you forever, Kate; but, we know you are at peace. God love you. A very special thanks to Sophie Borich, Helen Bogden and Helen Trauntvein, RN, for always being there to help in every way.
