Kathleen passed away early this morning.
This is the last picture I have of the two of us. It was taken in July 2008 on my crummy cell phone camera, and it's horribly unflattering of both of us. But it is us, and I will treasure it.
*The title comes from one of my very favorite poems. It's called "Dirge Without Music" by Edna St. Vincent Millay, and it is beautifully sad. Just like those who will miss Kathleen with all our hearts.
