The fourth anniversary of one of the saddest days in the history of The Cauldron is almost upon us. If you were a member of The Cauldron any time from about 2003 to early 2006, you will remember Chavi (aka Storyteller Cat and, in offline life, Cathlene Patricia McKenna) and starting in early 2005, her ever positive reports on her battle with a rare form of cancer. (You can read some of those posts here on our slow 2005 Archive Board.) The odds were against her from the beginning, but that did not stop her from fighting hard to try to be one of the rare survivors. And for a time it looked like she really might overcome those long odds. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be so.

Thursday, April 1, 2010, marks the fourth anniversary of Chavi's passing. TC has not been the same without her. For the past three years, we have honored her on April 1st with 24 hours of candle burning. We've will be continuing the tradition this year. We are asking all Cauldron members who knew her, knew of her, or who did not know her but just want to help honor a wonderful person (and wish to participate) to light a candle in her honor at 8pm your local time on April 1st and let it burn for at least an hour. The object is to have 24 hours of candles burning for her -- one hour at a time around the world. Given things like oceans and the like, this may not be completely possible, but I'll bet we can come close -- especially as some of us let our candles burn for longer than one hour.

If you want to participate, please post in here. Everyone, regardless of religion, is welcome to participate.  If you can't participate at 8pm your time, feel free to pick a different hour, Chavi would not have cared. Smiley

I'm in. I'll be on the side of Mt. Sinai at the time, so it may not be at 8pm and it may not be for an hour, but it will be lit. Meanwhile, where did I put that hat?...

As usual I'll be honoring our War Duke with a silly hat and round-the-clock candle burning.  <wanders off to re-read her posts>

Celtee penned these in honor of Chavi.

Chavi Ravenna,
Storyteller Cat.
Lover of life,
Collector of hats.

Gone too soon
But never forgot.
You'll live in our hearts
Whether you know it or not.

Chavi Ravenna
Bright shining star.
We'll love you forever,
Wherever you are.

Chavi Ravenna,
Storyteller Cat.
We'll miss you forever,
Wherever you're at.


(by celtee)



The anniversary is come
This day once a year
Our hearts now are heavy
We’ll shed many tears

Chavi Ravenna
Your spirit lives on
Always we remember
Tho two years have gone

Our memories of you
Are now bittersweet
But close to our hearts
We ever shall keep

Chavi Ravenna
Sweet shining star
Always so close
Yet ever so far

Storyteller Cat
Dux Bellorum, War Duke
This day we salute you
And laugh through our tears


Celtee

Chavi was very fond of hats.  After she lost her hair to chemo, several of us made her various sorts of head gear.  And so...hats, preferably silly, are worn in her honor on April 1st.

Meanwhile, where did I put that hat?...

Speaking of hats, I've temporarily modified the permissions Regular members have so that everyone can use a remotely-hosted avatar. This will let those who wish to don a silly hat in honor of Chavi on April First. I'll leave the permission on for a few days after that so they can be changed back.
