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.

I was not aware she was ill. I’ll always remember her courgae going up alone against the Mayor on TV when Hillary stiffed the media and that little girl. I smile when I remember that. How one person made sure they didn’t get off scott free.

her family is added to the house prayer list.

"kattracks", otoh, needs NO prayers, as she sleeps in the sheltering arms of The Eternal Savior.

He Wishes For the Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,

Enwrought with golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Of night and light and the half-light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet:

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

William Butler Yeats

Thanks for sharing the dream with us, Kattracks.

You will be remembered and missed. May the Good Lord comfort your Loved Ones.

Kattracks was a wonderful FReeper and a credit to this forum. She was also an enthusiastic supporter of our troops and sent care packages to them on a regular basis.

May she rest in peace.

Awful news John and she is one freeper I will miss terribly. Seems like only yesterday we were standing together waiting for GWB to exit Letterman’s studio. She was the picture of health so looking forward to electing a Republican President. May she Rest in Peace and may God bless her family during this most difficult time.

my body also will rest secure,

you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
