In Loving Memory of Kathryn Chastain Treat

IN LOVING MEMORY OF KATHRYN CHASTAIN TREAT

Kathryn C. Treat passed away on Sunday, December 21, 2014 @ 2:20 am (California time). On Friday, Dec. 19, after having a wonderful time at the Rave Reviews Book Club’s virtual Christmas party, in a virtual chat room with her fellow RRBC VIP Lounge members, Kathryn informed that she was not feeling well and that she was going to leave. Shortly thereafter, she suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and then lapsed into a coma.

BOOK TRAILER

Kathryn was a dedicated member of RRBC until her passing and she was one of the most supportive members the club had…not just to one, but to all. Kathryn leaves to mourn her husband, her mother, a sister, her two daughters, a son-in-law and three grand-kids (who she adored more than life), as well as her entire RRBC family.

Let us remember Kathryn and honor her memory by always being kind to one another and by always offering our support to another. It’s what she did. It’s how she lived. It’s who she was. In honor, many blogs across the world are memorializing Kathryn today with the same post that you see here. If Kathryn touched your life in anyway, please share your memories and comments below. As everyone who knew Kathryn may not yet know of her home-going, we ask that you also share this page on all your social media forums. We have erected a memorial page on the Rave Reviews Book Club site that will remain. Please stop by to leave your comments and memories of Kathryn as well, so that her family will get a sense of just how loved she was by so many. There you will also find more information on Kathryn and how RRBC has planned to continually honor her in other ways.

THANK YOU!

Trailer for Allergic to Life

Today, I found out (through a new blog I’m now following: Meeka’s Mind), that there is a an actual trailer for author, Kathryn Treat’s book, Allergic to Life: my battle for survival, courage and hope, and it’s on YouTube! This is exciting for me as I’ve followed Kathryn since my health was set back from living in a mouldy house in 2012; luckily, I’ve made some progress and I’m on my way to recovery, but along this (the most horrid part of my life so far!) pathway out of here, she has been a beacon of hope. Hope of what is possible!

So yes, I’m proud and chuffed to see Kathryn on YouTube!

Last year, at Uni (2013), I studied my second class on interview skills: and I’ve just finished an certain interview that seems to have taken an eternity to write! (Since that class!) But as Kathryn recently said to me: “Everything happens when it’s meant to.” Now, this interview is with one of my favourite authors; but I’ll leave it up to you to guess which one… Ergo, I’ve just submitted it for publication with AESSRA‘s Sensitivity Matters, Australia’s Allergy organisation. Wish me luck on getting published, xx.
