    Dear Anna and Dane

    So sorry to hear of Kate’s passing and her illness. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

    There is a lovely obit in this morning’s San Francisco Chronicle. It is pouring rain out here. Your music continues to play in our heads.

    Love and best wishes,
    Christopher and Linda

    Dear Anna and Dane:

    We were so sad to learn of Kate’s illness and death. We have vivid memories of you and Kate in your youth and ours, and of your music. In oour hearts and minds, Kate is as alive as all of us.

    Our thoughts are with you and your family, and hope that you find solace in Kate’s memory and comfort from family and friends.
