This news came as a shock to me, too, via Facebook, as I haven't visited the forum much recently. Many of you have already expressed my feelings about Kat and her taking leave of this earth much better than I can. She was one of the brightest spots and warmest souls I met on the 'Cat, and I had hoped to meet in person someday.
I'm so glad Kat's song "That's Not My Colorado" was included on the Mudcat CD "This Is Us: Sky," as was "Morgan's Song" (performed by Morgan himself). I also still have an mp3 of Kat singing another song which we couldn't use on the CD for copyright reasons.
We have, indeed, lost a good friend, even those of us who never got to meet her in the flesh.
