AntKat and her quilt
AntKat with her community quilt -- which she loved because it has your love in it

I just received sad news from AntKat's sister -- and a request to share it with the community.  AntKat had cancers of the throat and had reached the point where she could no longer eat or drink -- and palliative chemo had failed to help.  Her sister wrote:

I'm sorry to bring you sad news. Kathleen is gone. She left us on November 1 at about 1:00 pm. She fought so very hard for the last 6 months, but I think she was so weary of the struggle and was ready to let go.

 I want to express my gratitude again for all the support and comfort she received from you, your sister and all of the online community from DailyKos. You'll never know just how much it meant to her. Please share this news and my gratitude with them.

Rest in peace, dear, sweet lady.  Your suffering is all done now.  But how we will miss your lovely presence in this community.  Godspeed, AntKat.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
