An absence

May 10, 2007

This will be my last post for a little while. My brother passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, and I’m back in Napa now with my parents trying to sort through everything. He was only 18, and it’s incredibly hard to look in his room, with his new computer for college in the fall, and try to understand why he left. Everyone is holding it together for the time being, but with the memorial and funeral coming it’s getting harder. So, keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

    Holy crap Kate. I am so sorry. I can’t even imagine. I have an 18 year old brother and wow. If there is anything else I can do for you just let me know. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    Kate- Love and Peace to you and your brother. You have such a remarkable, beautiful spirit and I’m so glad to have you in my life. I am so sorry to see such a tragedy happen. Please call any time you want to cry, laugh, vent, sigh… or just be silent and listen to me ramble aimlessly or vice versa.

    Kate, I’m so saddened to hear your news. I can’t imagine how much pain and shock your family is going through right now. I’ll keep you and your family in my thoughts. Be well and be there for each other.

    Oh, I’m so sorry. How young and how sad. My stepson passed away unexpectedly three years ago. It is still hard.
