I have been away from the 'Cat for a good while - health issues.

Although we never met "in the flesh", so to speak, she became a dear friend.

May she rest in the arms of the Great Mother, and know the All Father's smile.

Till next time, Kat - love from Bryn, and heartfelt condolences to all who loved her.

Thank you, Janie. How wonderful! The tiny bit that is in my yard at the edge of the creek balances the portion that is traveling to the Gulf of Mexico. It's good to travel, but it's nice to stay put for a while also.

I'm not sure, LEJ. Spaw may know and when I call Roger I'll ask. I hope so.

Kat hiked high and low in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, as well as high in the Balsam and Pisgah mountains in the southern North Carolina part of the Blue Ridge. Her ashes are dancing on the tops of carpets of spring ephemerals, tripping down small mountain springs and rills, and roaring over waterfalls on their way to the Mississippi and the Atlantic. They are also cavorting on the early spring updrafts on mountaintops where trees are just starting to green their buds, from places with spectacular views of surrounding mountains and the basins that both divide them and tie them together in these ancient lands.

I have selfishly held on to some small bit of her ashes to scatter among the hills of my own beloved homeland of West Virginia. Don't know when I will scatter those or just where.

I wonder if any of her ashes were cast into the Wyoming wind and out across the high plains, the sage brush and prairie grass she loved. A hard and rocky place to call home, but those that do seem never to want to leave it.

Thanks to Sinsull and Jacqui sharing, Kat's ashes are also on our farm- in our little memorial garden and in the greening woods in a hidden, lovely hollow by the brook. A wren sings there, and wood thrushes as well...she would have loved it.

I occasionally talked to the the box when it was on my kitchen table, though I wish she'd been able to visit when she was capable of conversation. I was glad to offer one of many pleasant resting places and contribute to her travels.

Several months ago Bill D sent me a small canister, and I've been waiting to open it. Today I scattered the small container of ashes from katlaughing into the creek behind my house. I wanted the right kind of day - a productive one in the garden, a day when the yard was looking lovely, and in the nice spring weather. Just before the storm that passed over this evening I went out through the back gate and walked through the lovely lush undergrowth under tall slim trees then followed a game trail along the little bluff and scattered the ashes into the creek and down the bluff. A little of kat is at the edge of the yard, but most of this portion is racing through the year-round creek to the Trinity River then down to the Gulf of Mexico. It was lovely to have her here for a while, and to give her one more opportunity to visit a new place.

Sinsull will be getting some directly from Roger a bit later as will Janie and myself. So the Maine folks will all be covered (unintentional joke there).

For those who will be at the Getaway, please see me when you arrive and we will work out a plan. I have created smaller 'containers' for those who wish to convey our Kat to various events.

Also, if there is still anyone who was not included in Roger's original distribution and who would really like to participate in sending Kat to all corners of the world, PM me..or post here... and I'm sure that, with Roger's permission, I can arrange to send a bit your way for a private ceremony. Many people have personal ideas of appropriate gestures, and I believe I can divide the 'extra' to accommodate various ideas.

I haven't been here in a while and was deeply shocked and saddened to see this thread that Kat has passed. I only knew her like all of you, through this forum. She was a year and a day older than me and we would sometimes Happy Birthday each other when we remembered. One year she was my Santee. I sent her a box of things and as an after thought included a story I wrote about my time in a Catholic orphanage in the 60's. She was very encouraging about it and kept telling me to write a book. Funny how you can know someone only through a forum like this and yet you form a bond. Her bright spirit will be missed around here, but I know she will brighten up where ever she ventures next.

I rarely post these days, but now I must . KatLaughing was instrumental in me joining The Mudcaat Cafe many yeasrs ago, and I had the priveledge of joining her, (and Roger) at a couple of Mudcat gatherings. Played some songs, if I recall. If anyone helped shaped the identity of The Mudcat Cafe, it was Kat. Probably the most consistent voice advocating folk music that I remember, (other than Spaw, but that's an entirely different story). If some of her ashes could come back to Colorado, I think she'd be pleased. I'd take good care, indeed. Thanks, BlueJay

I have just returned to Mudcat after waiting six months to be reconnected to the net. I cannot believe that Kat is no longer with us, it was she who made me feel so welcome when I first joined some years ago and trusted me with transferring her dad's songs to disc. My family and I will never forget you Kat, I know your spirit will always be in the wind and one day we will finally meet. Rest in peace.

I'll drop this thought; anyone is free to consider it, or just let it go. Kat was free-spirited enough to enjoy visiting a nude beach, and to mention that in discussion. Should anyone who receives ashes have the convenient opportunity, and be comfortable with it, they might scatter a bit in such a setting.

Kat is the most kindred and inviting spirit who introduced me to this community. Strong in tenderness and gentle in powerful emotion she inspired kind thoughts and gifts from me without silly second thoughts as to why.
Spaw, you are genius in your sharing ideas, devotion and kindness.
