I don't know Kathleen personally but I was lucky enough to have met her at Kian and Trevor's wedding. I introduced myself to her as Kian's friend. She thanked me for coming to the wedding and said sorry that it was a short notice. I really didn't know what to do or say but just smiled and squeezed her hands gently.
I didn't really know anybody at the wedding so I had a chance to observe and capture not only the bride and the groom but Kathleen and her family as well. It was the most beautiful, meaningful and emotional wedding I ever attended.
From what I saw, Kathleen was a very warm, loving and caring lady who was full of joy and happiness. She laughed while dancing with her husband and the bride. They were having fun and leaving her illness behind to enjoy every moments at the wedding together. My eyes were filled with tears when I saw the family holding each other at the corner of the dancing floor crying.
I told myself before leaving the wedding that I wouldn't leave without saying goodbye to her. She thanked me again for coming and sorry for the short notice due to the circumstance. This time I hold her in my arms, touched her face and said that I loved her. Tears in my eyes when I walked back to my vehicle.
I saw Kathleen occasionally via Kian's Vblog. She was so strong and brave. Saw her laughing and smiling on the video clips and I thought, this was a lady whom death was calling her name but she was so graceful, had strong faith, high spirit and dignity. I admired her a lot.
RIP Kathleen. I'm so honored to have met you.
To the family, although words cannot describe the loss but may the Lord bless and comfort you during this time of grief. Please accept my sincere condolences.
