KaryninMiami

I am heartbroken to report that Karyn has passed.

In sharing her journey, she had an extraordinary ability to seek out and focus on the positives and live each day to the fullest. Her words often quieted my spirit and helped me refocus priorities, as I am sure they did for most of us here.

May her family and friends find peace and strength in this most difficult time.


Namaste, Karyn. Cross gently.

2. She really did, Ruby. Karyn was a gem. She reached out beyond her own pain to help others.

I was lucky to have known her.

3. Moment of silence

both out of respect and for me to collect my thoughts.

Karyn always had a good word to say, we PM'd occasionally, and I know it was getting particularly tough for her, but she always had a smile in her writing.

You're at peace now; thank you for what you contributed to the world and the group.

Love,

Tab

she touched my heart with her courage.

May all those struggling with this disease first find hope and if not find peace and may her loved ones not suffer too much but remember her sprit for life.

16. Heartbroken... and grateful

I am so grateful that Karyn touched my life. In particular, I will always treasure the time Dusty ("Senator" on DU) and I shared with Karyn and Andy at the "Gathering to Save Our Democracy" in Nashville back in 2005.

When she responded to my post about Dusty's death, Karyn wrote "I have to believe that not only did Dusty have a terrific reunion with Andy- but I'll bet they are gonna team up and help us win this election." That was back in 2012. In her tribute to Andy, she wrote "He was an extraordinary person, a hero of democracy and a wonderful friend. Knowing that he is now free of the pain that had taken over his body these past few months it is a comfort to know that he is free now and has left it all behind."

Words are failing me, so I borrow hers. I have to believe that not only did Karyn, Dusty, and Andy have a terrific reunion, but that they are going to team up and help us with this election. She was an extraordinary person, a hero of democracy, and a wonderful friend. I take comfort in knowing she is free of the pain she suffered, and am thankful that she gained some measure of normalcy -- even if only for a short time -- before the end. ("Still here and feeling good" Nov 10, 2015)

I love you Karyn.
