a loss

swim-for-katie

It is with a very heavy heart that I write to you to let you know that Katie Renz has passed. Early in the  morning, Monday, November 7, at 5:10am PST. She passed peacefully in her sleep, surrounded by her family until the very end.

There was such overwhelming support for the Swimming for Katie hop and fundraiser, and it was so greatly appreciated. The donation link is still live, as is the static page with the fundraising items for sale. All the information is HERE.  If  you feel moved, you still have the opportunity to purchase or donate.

Sympathy cards can be sent to:

The Renz Family
PO Box 5913
Bellingham, WA 98227-5913


Also, in case you're interested, the twins, Nate and Will, will be turning 6 on Nov. 19th and Hunter will be 12 on Dec. 1. It would be wonderful if we could shower them with cards for their special day, just like their mom would do. Kevin's birthday is November 17.

Please keep Kevin and the boys in your prayers. And for more than just the next few days…

Rest in peace, Katie.

Thank You Kimberly, and for the added info on birthdays. We all take so much for granted. My heart goes out to this family.
