Remembering Kathryn Caskie

The world of romance lost a shining light last week with the death of historical romance author Kathryn Caskie. Not only was Kathy a gifted author but she was also a warm, funny, generous woman who greatly appreciated her readers. I enjoyed her books, had fun 'chatting' with her online, and had the pleasure of meeting her in person at various events.
Kathy and her best friend, and fellow author, Sophia Nash were a dynamic duo who could light up a room with their wit, charm, and smiles. You simply couldn't be around them without smiling in return. That's how I want to remember her. She was taken from us too soon but her smile, her joy, and her stories will remain in the hearts of those of us whose lives she touched.
With Sophia's permission, I am sharing the following information, posted by her earlier today:
"My dearest friend and fellow author, Kathryn Caskie, died
last week and I'm posting memorial service information for
her friends who would like to attend a celebration
of Kathy's life. All are welcome:"

  10. Oh, how sad. I was a huge fan of Kathryn's writing, and the romance community has lost another great voice. Though our grief is nothing, I'm sure, is nothing compared to what her family and friends must feel. May she rest in peace, and may her family and friends know that Kathryn (through her wonderful prose) touched many lives. God bless. ~Suzanne
