Kate Kelly – A New Star in the Sky

Dancing with the Angels
This will probably be the shortest post I will ever write.
The Spirit of my dear friend and colleague
Kate Kelly left her body last night.
Since, along with more spiritually-based reasons, I have always assured students and clients that, “In heaven, everyone gets to have ADD,” we can be comforted that she is most certainly among those who understand her perfectly and appreciate her fully.
Among MANY other things, Kate is the co-author, with Peggy Ramundo, of the early ADD classic, since updated: You Mean I’m NOT Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!
It will take a bit more time for me to assimilate all that has happened since January, when we suddenly became aware, quite dramatically, that Kate was battling Stage-4 bladder cancer.
Once I gather my molecules again, and when all of us on her Care Team are able to put together ANYTHING that doesn’t have to be done right this second, I will post a proper tribute to her life, along with information about Memorial Services, live and virtual.
Please let me know (below) if YOU have written a tribute and where to find it, and I will link mine to yours.
Thank you to those of you who saw the announcements posted on Kate’s CaringBridge and sent me beautiful messages of caring and comfort in the last fourteen hours.
God Bless Us, EVERY one,
I Am Not Gone
I am not gone
I remain here beside you
Just in a different form
Look for me in your heart
And there you will find me
In our love which forever lives on
In those moments when you feel alone
Look for me in your thoughts
And there you will find me
In sweet memories that burn strong
Every time a tear
Forms in your beautiful eyes
Look up to the heavens
And there you will see me
Smiling down from God’s glorious skies
