View Full Version : Life's Journey - Katadin Goddess

08-08-2009, 01:28 PM
Anyone who has been on this site very long knows the name Katadin Goddess, aka, "The Goddess". She is a lady who loves music, owns a Jeep, has many Geocaching finds and has put out her share of caches.

KG has just suffered, probably, one of the greatest losses one may be dealt in life. Her beloved son Ryan, 27 years old, passed away yesterday. Chercacher has been in touch with KG and KG did want her GCM community to know of her loss. Chercacher asked me if I would please post a note to these forums.

Final detail and an obituary are being worked on today. For those of you who may want to be with her during this time - basics of the planning which has already been done are visitation at Funeral Alternatives on Tampa St. in Lewiston from 4P - 7P Wednesday. The details for the funeral on Thursday are still being worked on.

I am sure KG would appreciate quiet thoughts and prayers at this time. Chercacher and vicbiker are planning on doing some things, so please contact them for more information and coordination.

We never know where life's journey may take us. It does help knowing a wonderful community of friends surround us.

i am overwhelmed with the thoughts & prayers from everyone. thank you so much. although i am not vocally active on the site, i do visit from time to time. ryan was my jeeping side kick, with the last venture to castle ledge in minot just less than month ago. i recall conversation with him about going back as it would be a great place to put a cache. maybe i'll put him in the cache since he made fun of me when out looking for tupperware (i wouldnt do that, put him in there) so today is the second worse day of my life ... couldnt sleep ... not the kind of goodbye i want to be saying.

thanks again, elaine
