Carol - Kaz to you all - died in her sleep early in the morning of Valentine's Day.

Her funeral was attended by about 50 people which, considering she has two living relatives, shows how much people thought of her. It was conducted - according to her instructions - by her friends and was a warm and friendly gathering. The music she had chosen was

(Thanks you for the) Days - The Kinks (entry)
Soave Sea Il Vento - trio from Mozart's opera Cosi Fan Tutte (for silent reflection)
Don't Fear The Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult (exit)

The message she left for me ended with the instruction 'enjoy life', which I am sure she would extend to you all.

Rest in Peace, Kaz. Thank you for all the laughs, the memories, and for sharing your company with us. You were a wonderful human being who made our blogging world a little brighter; and you are missed and much loved...I'll look for you in the heavens, knowing that there's one more angel looking out for us; one more star to guide us in the dark night.

To Kaz's loved ones, family and friends, I wish you all strength and peace at this time. Thank you for sharing this news with us. I am sad but grateful to know.

KAZ, thank you for all the laughs we shared.

I'm thankful that your blog is here to remind us of your wonderful sense of humour.

I'll continue to pop 'round here from time to time with a bottle of vodka and raise my glass to your spirit.

Thank you, Keith...KAZ was a great gal. I can't put it into words but thankfully Eroswings has expressed it well.

Keith, so sorry to hear it. I hope you have had plenty of support at this time. Reading between the lines, you have done a great deal and she was fortunate to have you.

A great lady and a wonderful blogger. Am glad she gave those dratted doctors a run for their money.

Now to keep those angels on their toes!

Rest in peace, dearest Kaz.

I always looked forward to reading Kaz and getting a comment from her.
She was always so smart, funny, playful and witty.

I never forgot this quip, "If my doppelganger is successful I will have a very serious attack of schadenfreude."

Kaz also never lowered the bar to give you an easy pass, she'd call you on things that she knew you could have improved upon..and I loved that about her.

Most of all she always made me feel welcome and I am so grateful that I had the privelege to engage with such a great Lady. What a lovely Human Being.

Blogger The Poet Laura-eate said...

Keith, I hope you have contacted Blogger to ensure they never delete this wonderful work of art - Kaz's legacy. I mean I don't know if that's a risk or not, but it's worth heading it off just in case.

And I for one would welcome it if you took over the blog and started posting your own pithy comments, piccies and observations on the world and how you are getting on. It's almost as if we got to know you through Kaz's commentary after all and you sound like you also have a great sense of humour and much to share.

Perhaps that seems a little American and cheesy, but I don't think it would be bad taste personally. Though of course I understand you must do what you feel best respects Kaz's wishes.
