In Memory of Kay

Once Upon A Time…


~~Once upon a time there was a beautiful girl named
Kay.  She looked like a movie star, but I
didn’t mind,  because I loved loved loved
her.

 

She was my best friend,
my soul mate, my secret keeper,  my
chocolate chip cookie maker, my blood, my root.

 

She was everything.

 

And that’s the entire truth.

 

Then one day she met a man who promised her the world, a
better life, true love.  He was older. He
was wiser.  She thought he was a fucking rock
star.

 

But he turned out to be nothing at all.

 

She married him regardless, but he was never a husband.

 

She had three baby boys, but he was never a father.

 

“He crushes my soul,”
she’d often say.  “How can
somebody walk around with a crushed soul the rest of her life?”

 

I never trusted him.  No.
Never.  Ever.

 

We moved all of his guns over to our parents house when he
wasn’t home.  Hid them high.

 

Intuition.

Instinct.

Something else insidiously strong.

 

We have these inside for a reason.

 

But it wasn’t enough.

 

He found another gun. He would have always found another
gun, another way to control her, another way to prevent her from becoming whole.

 

He took everything from the very beginning.

 

Her self-belief, dreams, hopes, soul, laughter, and in the
end—

Her life.

 

~~Once upon a time there was a remarkable, radiant girl
named Kay.

 

Our roots twisted and tangled together like hair flying in
wind.

 

She was everything.

 

But three years ago,
her soon to be ex- husband shot her three times in the head as she was
walking out the front door.

 

Just like that.

 

Bang      Bang.      Bang.

 

How fragile the human body is.  How unspeakably breakable.

 

She was here—then she was gone.

 

A life snuffed out that quickly…like blowing out a brilliant
candle…

 

like removing the sun and replacing it with night.

    Love you. Yes, the human body is so fragile. Even more so when there is no soul in it. I am sad that Kay was associated with such a soulless person.

Every time you write, I am blessed to know Kay at least a little. Every time you write, I am astonished at your strength. Every time you write I wish you didn’t have to.

    This story continues to boggle my mind and grab my heart. I didn’t know she had 3 sons. How old are they?

    This is such a testament to our dire need of gun control, in this country. Not to mention more (never enough) awareness of domestic violence. I sometimes feel I must have had a guardian angel, full time, when I was a kid.

    I will be there in spirit for the walk! You are making Kay so proud.

    The piece that prevents hatred for Kay’s killer from entering my soul is this: While he could destroy her body, he couldn’t destroy her spirit. While he could end her earthly life, he couldn’t end her soul’s journey.

    In a way, like Darth Vader’s murder of Obi-Wan Kenobi, that bastard’s action succeeded in making her an even more powerful force for good in this world.

    It still sucks… {{{ Kim and Kay }}}

    Lady E,
    unfortunately, guns can be given to almost any idiot in America. HOW SAD.

    I’ve miss you. How are you? What is going on in the Alps? Xx

    Kim, I never tire of admiring photos of beautiful, movie-star Kay! Oh my goodness, what a beauty! She is stunning, just stunning. And just as beautiful as the love you have for her. Your post reminds me of how even when we try to harness evil, even when we do all that we think is necessary for preventing it from taking those we love, it sometimes finds a way. How sad and tragic that gorgeous Kay had to meet this individual. Nevertheless, thanks to your loyalty and devotion, she lives on through your writing. She lives on, Kim. But then you already know that, my friend. Hang on to that thought, today and always. Sending love to you from Roxy and me!

    I don’t know what to say.
    I’m just thankful that you’re the strong voice behind every tear, bruises, verbal attacks…those women? Need you my friend.
    Keep Kay going.

    Such a heartbreaking story my friend, Kay was indeed a beautiful woman and I am sad that her life was cut short 🙁

    There is no room in this world for domestic, or any other form of violence against another, it is unnecessary and incredibly wrong for one to be so domineering, and in this instance to the point of killing another human being. Sadly there are women all over the globe suffering at the hands of these fiendish individuals and I hope that something can be done to stop this disgraceful act of physical and mental abuse.

      Dear Andro,

      We are trying to stop this epidemic.

      I only wish I would have known more before this happened to my dear sweet Kay.

      For example, when a woman is leaving her abusive parnter, it is THE MOST DANGEROUS time.

      Thank you for reading my mourning, dear.

    No words for you… just gasps and groans and tears and prayers.

    I hate this story you have to tell. Hate it.

    The only part I want to cling to is her radiance. Yours too.
