phoenyxx: I am very sorry.
Diablo1: yes i am still trying to get star craft
HelloKit: For those who don't already know, our friend Keteri was involved in a car accident Friday and did not survive. Tonight's chat is dedicated to her. I won't be formally hosting this meeting, instead I'd like us all just to take this time to talk about and remember her.
Mimi: THIS IS A MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR OUR FRIEND KETERI WHO DIED FRIDAY MORNING IN A CAR ACCIDENT
Jo-: Diablo in and out of hospital.
Mimi: and please lets stay on topic
Diablo1: ohhh
phoenyxx: I feel really bad at times like this, I want to say something, but I never know what to say or how to really express things.
Diablo1: sorry to hear
In: Have we met Jo
Diablo1: i haven't really been here too much either but am starting to make my way back
mouse: When I joined she was there - disabled is going to have an empty space for me with her gone
Mimi: ket was someone very special to a lot of individuals in the channel
Lily: none of us do, pheonyx
Diablo1: mimi you mean ket is gone
* MrLinux feels real bad
Mimi: Diablo...ket was killed
skiier: sORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR FRIEND
Diablo1: ohhhhhh my
Diablo1: when
Jo-: She was a very beautiful person inside and out. I have her picture on the wall. Long dark hair and very pretty young lady but it was the inner persons' beauty that made her special.
jrt: yes she was so sweet and kind, never a nasty comment about anybody
Mimi: scroll up please, we've been talking about it for a while now :o(
codfish: may her heart be truly at peace
Diablo1: yes i only got to know hte inside person
* phoenyxx agrees with codfish
Mimi: her inner beauty just shone, Jo
mouse: I too have her smiling picture on my printer
Mimi: she had so many problems, and never bitched or complained
Diablo1: and that was all i needed to know to see that she was a very beatiful person
phoenyxx: what was her disability, pardon the presence again.
Diablo1: a true gift of god
jrt: the world has lost a beautiful person
Mimi: she cared far too much about others for that
Mimi: more of us need to be like Ket...she cared about other people and tried not to dwell on her own problems
codfish: she was the kind of person that allowed us to be able to deal with cold people we met, one on a thousand
MrLinux: ok hold on
Lily: she always asked me about me, never spoke about herself
Mimi: I think she drew strength from the knowledge that she helped all of us...she felt needed and useful, and loved
phoenyxx: If it means anything, I do feel very guilty about what happens to other people.
hanover9: ket knew how to warm your heart when you were down and she help so much
*** turbokev has joined #Disabled
jrt: yes I agree Mimi, she never ever complained, yet she had all the right to
Mooooooo: exactly mimi, no matter how much she was hurting (and she had a world of hurts) she put it all aside when soemone else was in need
*** skiier has left irc (Ping timeout for skiier port9.compmore.net])
*** `coral` has joined #disabled
In: Never knew her but wish I had.
phoenyxx: I didn't know her that well, but all I can say is that I saw what the rest of you saw in her.
Jo-: I know some of you find peace by talking about this but I must leave. It is more important to me to honor her beliefs. One of those is not saying the name after death to allow her soul peace in rest. Don't mean to insult anyone but rather than slip and use it I am leaving.
Mooooooo: i understand jo
jrt: I understand Jo
Lily: ok, jo:)
In: Bye Jo
codfish: ok
hanover9: ok jothat sounds right
Mimi: most people, when they're hurting, are incapable of understanding anyone's elses feelings but their own
phoenyxx: I understand too Jo.
Mimi: but ket was bigger than that
Jo-: Thank you Moooooooo knew you would. Old Indian custom Great Granny drilled into us and since she was I just can't. bye
phoenyxx: Mimi: I admire people like that.
Mimi: yeah, Simon...
Mimi: she was special
*** Jo- has left #disabled
Mimi: and she could be so much fun too :o)
phoenyxx: I agree Mimi :-)
*** Diablo1 has left irc (Ping timeout for Diablo1 1Cust81.max22.cleveland.oh.ms.uu.net])
Mooooooo: i looked at where she signed our guestbook and laughed my ass off. most people wont get it (inside job) but its so funny :o)
Mimi: we had a great time joking around
Mimi: I'll miss that
Mooooooo: inside joke
Mimi: she tried to make peace with all of us too
jrt: yesterday I was looking through the guestbook on the disabled web site, and there is a message from Ket back in Feb of this year
Mimi: not all of her friends got along together
Mimi: :o)
phoenyxx: I wished I could more often meet people like her and feel inspired and not feel guilty for not being worse off. In some way, seeing someone more limited trying to adapt shows me what's possible, and from that I can draw some inspiration.
Mooooooo: thats the one, debbie
phoenyxx: Please don't flame me for the melodrama, only way to express it.
turbokev: She was nice to me on the few times when we chatted
Mimi: but she would tell us...now that person is not so bad, just take it easy...and show us the good side of the other person that we never saw
jrt: yeah it bought a smile to my face too
Mimi: she signed my guestbook, too...and its still up
Mimi: I saw it yesterday I think
Mimi: had a cry when I saw it
In: Good-Night everyone, will pray for everyone, will talk soon.
codfish: even when channel was busy she made each feel comfy and special
turbokev: thats an excellent way to few things
Lily: bye in:)
mouse: I must go back to bed now. To me she will still be in me - I loved her and I hope she loved me. Blessings all Sorry I have to run.
codfish: bye in
jrt: yeah,Sarah wants to see the pic I have of Ket, but I know I would burst into tears right now if I looked at it
fence: if you could just give me a min to talk about Ket, its real hard and i need to do this
jrt: Bye In
jrt: Bye Mouse
Mimi: OK seth...
Lily: bye mouse
Mimi: please tell us about her
MrLinux: go say what u need to Fence
phoenyxx: You know something, I just realized that I never knew what her disability was- she always made sure we knew her as a real person! That I really admire :-)
Mooooooo: ok seth
hanover9: she was so young and alive that she stired somthing in me that i thought i had lost and she will always be with me now and all of vus that were touched by her will always walk with her in our heart
