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.
