i am so saddened by the news that MY Care2 friend, Linda - know as KAT - has passed away. She was a wonderful person I will miss her. You can go to the funeral site to pay tribute either by lighting a candle or write your condolences, R.I.P dear Kat!

Dear Linda aka Kat, now you are happy and healthy in Heaven were your beloved ones were waiting for you.
I send you a sweet kiss dear Kat. I love you.
Than you Lone for put the advice on Kat profile page, it was a stroke for me this morning but I felt there were something strange in my heart, now I know Kat is serene and I am sure she is playing with a lot of cats.

I am sorry this didn't get more notice to make it to front page, was just made aware today of her passing. I went to place this same link on to notify others and see that you had already done so.

I was not directly linked to Linda or KAT K as she was known to fellow C2 members; but I saw her avatar around C2 land so was aware of her. I noticed on her profile page that she liked David Bowie and cats so with those two factors alone I'm sure we would have liked each other.

So many members we do not all get to meet for one reason or another and I'm saddened I'll never get to do so now. RIP Kat and thank you for all you did for the C2 Community and beyond. My condolences to any family or friends who may come across this thread at some point.

And thank you Katka Oelmann, C2 member, for sending me a direct message concerning Linda's passing.

Every Care2 member who passes is a loss to the entire world. That is why I tell people I know are open-minded and progressive/green/left-leaning about Care2 and encourage them to join.

Ms. Kat as I referred to her and I were very close friends. She was such a lovely and kind woman! She also had a wicked sense of humor. She was a fierce animal activist and would not tolerate anyone being cruel to them. I was taken aback by the sad news. I knew she was having health issues, but she was never one to harp or complain, so I never realized how serious it was. She was also a very brave soul. I am a better person for knowing her and I feel deeply privileged for having her in my life. Although it was way to short a time. She also loved the color purple, like I do. I could go on and on about what a cool person she was, but I think I made my point. She is at peace now with all her beloved fur babies. I will hold her in my heart and soul forever and miss her terribly!!!!

RIP Kat, 'Linda' I saw you around Care2 but didn't personally know you. I know that your loved ones welcomed you with open arms, And the many that knew and loved you here are deeply saddened by your departure. I hope you look down and see that many have sadly seen you off to another realm.

Sorry, I guess I can't figure out the emoticons anymore (it's been a very long time since I've used them here).
