Received an email from kadesma's husband.

Just wanted to share an email I received from kadesma's husband, Gil. When he let me know she'd died and asked me to notify her DC family, I accepted and asked him if there was anything I could do. The following email is his reply:

Katie,

I have read all of the posts concerning Carole on the discuss Cooking Forum. Fantastic!!!!
I can honestly say that I cried after every post. The love that all of you showed will never
be forgotten.

Sincerely,
Gil
p.s. You asked, what can I do? YOU DID IT



I just wanted our DiscussCooking family to know that all your posts mean a lot to him. It's truly an honor to be part of such a compassionate site. You can see that what was said touched him.

Thanks for sharing that Katie. My thoughts and prayers are with him as you and I both know what it is to be widowed. Life has gone on for both you and I, but the world really just stops spinning for a time.
Prayers for Gil...

Gina and Erica, I ran my girlfriend for her dialysis three times a week for three weeks every month. So I know how difficult and painful it can be. But never, ever did we hear her complain once. Just the opposite. I was always amazed that she always wanted to bake something special for the nurses and staff. What else could she do? She had such a gentle and kind heart. It was always about others, never herself. She only saw the very best in others.

I have been playing Amazing Grace over and over again. A beautiful song for a beautiful soul. If there is a brighter star in the skies tonight, we will know it is Kadesma shining down on all of us. And mostly down on her family. Thank you for loaning her to us. It just wasn't long enough.

With love,

My gosh I am so sad to hear of this. She was such a wonderful person. She has been there for me when my dad passed. She and many other wonderful people have helped me through the worst time of my life. Thank you Cj. You will be greatly missed. :'(

Thank you again, everyone, for the kind words and love for my mom! I just wanted to let you know that your words have helped us so much that my dad has printed out every page of this thread and put them into a folder.

I just got the courage and emotional energy to open the box from kadesma that contained her surprise house warming gift to me. Here is a photo.
