I didn't know kari personally, except through her poetry -- which was wonderful and thought provoking, and her blogs, which were enlightening.

my best to you...

I'm terribly sorry for the world's and your loss -- but so many have and will continue to benefit from her writing, activism, and teaching. We are grateful.

a place
not a passage

we
who remain
feel the wind

stars
shimmer there
beyond our clamor

Fran;
I am so saddened at Kari's death. She will be missed. She leaves a legacy of showing us all to be ourselves, and to live by authentic means. I will be in touch. I wish you strength in your grief. Love,
Your old classmate

Fran, I am so sorry for your loss. Her death is a loss for the entire art world. Kari's work is brilliant and profound, as she was as a person.

I don't know if you remember me--I am the student at California State University in Northridge who wrote a paper on kari's work a couple of years ago. The two of you were kind enough to have us for tea when my husband and I were visiting in San Francisco.

My deepest sympathy,

Wendy Grosskopf

I am so sorry.

I'm sorry, too...kari was a prolific contributor to WOM-PO, where we met (and sometimes butted heads!) and I am certain that we are all poorer for her leaving. I just saw the first issue of WOMB poetry and this was how I learned of her passing. My deepest sympathies.

Hey Fran,

Again, so sorry for your loss and for everyone that was touched by kari--as an activist and a writer.

she will be missed by many.

I can only imagine what else she might have accomplished if she were on this earth for a few more years.

she left way too soon.
