I am sitting here this evening reflecting on an incredible outpouring of love, support and inspiration over the past 4 days from friends, family, neighbours, physicians, nurses, volunteers, teachers, therapists, coordinators who were a part of Kate’s life.
Kate died November 30th. She was 8 years old.
There are no words to express how I feel right now. Just raw emotion and a gut wrenching pain that no mom should ever experience. My daughter did not deserve this end. She deserved to live. She was a fighter, but she was also pure joy and light. Something this world desperately needs.
In the days to come you will learn more about Kate, because I will continue to write about her and celebrate her. We will have a public memorial on December 13th to celebrate her life and we are welcoming all to attend. (Details to come).
A person like Kate needs to be remembered. She literally changed the lives of others for the better. She was the embodiment of what is right with this world and what we should all strive for. That will be part of her legacy, and I plan to live it for her as best I can.
