I am in shock. I still can not believe it. This afternoon I was surprised to get the news that my friend, Katie Lynch has passed away.
She was such a special girl. I only knew her for three months but, she has changed my life forever. During and post treatment I was searching for someone. Someone who knew what I had been through. Someone who felt what I felt. Someone who was like me. Someone I could talk to. Someone who really understood. Katie was that someone. She radiated her warmth and light all the way from Indianapolis to rainy Seattle.
Though I am devastated by her death I know Katie is in a better place where words like "cancer" don't exist.


  1. My thoughts go out to you Sammy. I'm so sorry for the loss of this dear friend.


  2. Oh, Sammy ~

    I'm so sorry to hear about Katie. You're right; she's in a better place, but it doesn't make it any easier for those she has left behind.

    My heart goes out to you and her loved ones.

    Your friend,

    Judy Argo

  3. Oh Samma Lamma,
    I am so sorry to hear this news! I know she is in a better place too, with no pain, no more cancer... my thoughts and prayers go out to you and her family.
    I love you 'lots!
    Aunt Katie
