UPDATE: We received this from her son early this morning.

To Admin Moderator | 05/07/2007 3:21:46 AM CDT sent

I just wanted to let you, and all the wonderful people on this forum that my mother considered her friends, Kattracks, passed away yesterday afternoon. She died peacfully, with her family at her bedside. If you knew my mother, you knew how concerned she was with the welfare of others. At one point in the afternoon, we were all gathered at her bed, reminiscing about her,the good times, and all the good things she had done for others. It was as if she had waited for this moment, when she knew that her loved ones were going to be alright, that she was able to let go, and pass into the care of God. To all that knew her, be rest assured that she is waching over you from Heaven. That is just the way my mother was. She always put the welfare of others ahead of her own.

Everytime my brother, father, or I would leave the house, my mother’s last words to us was “Be Careful”. I asked her one day why she always said this to us. She explained to me that in that one phrase was wrapped up all the prayers, concerns, and love that she had for us, but to explain it all to us as we walked out the door would take too long, so she would just say “Be careful”. I’m glad I asked her what she meant, because from that day on, and everytime she said it since then, I understood who, and what, my mother was.

Thank you all for your prayers and support for her.

Frankie

---------------------

Original thread:

Kattracks has asked me to begin a prayer thread for her, the hardest thing I have ever been asked to do.

She has had a very frightening finding on a medical exam that is not confirmed and may be a false alarm, but which requires all of us to uplift her to Almighty God asking for His mercy to spare her life or to give her and us the strength and faith to walk the path He has chosen for her.

More information than that I am not at liberty to disclose.

Please ping everyone you know who can pray for kattracks, who was long a moderator on FR and now is the Fairy Godmother of the Merry Band of Patriots.

Prayers for false alarm and peace until the findings are known.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Kat on a few occasions and Kat you are a dear woman who can handle any adversity.

Holy Father,

Our times are in Your hands. We confess that You are the source of all healing, and we place our beloved friend, kattracks, in Your everlasting arms, asking that You restore her completely to good health. Calm her fears just as You calmed the seas. Place in her the confidence that You will not forsake her in her time of need. Send her wonderful friends to keep her spirits uplifted and her heart inclined to You. Help her to pay no attention to bad news, for You are in charge, and in Your eyes, there is no bad news for Your children who trust in You for their every need. Thank You, Father, that You will use for good what was intended for evil. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Heavenly Father, we ask you to be with our fellow Freeper Kattracks as she faces this adversity. Give her strength and peace of mind as she awaits the outcome of her medical tests. Send your angels to be with her at this time. May your divine grace be with her and also with the medical personnel as they study her case. In Jesus' holy name we pray. Amen.

Thanks for the ping Howlin.

Kattracks is one of this site's "Finest Kind". I do hope and will pray she can be on the mend quickly and be back to full health. Kattracks was one of the first FReepers I "met" after I registered here in 2001.
