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 turn 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.

Wednesday, April 1, 2009, marks the third anniversary of Chavi's passing. TC has not been the same without her. For the past two 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 people let their candles burn for longer than one hour.

The time would be marked in your time zone so it would be like a 24-hour honoring of a wonderful person. 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

This year, we will also be honoring Chavi by opening a SIG for Pagans (and their friends) who are dealing with chronic, long-term and/or terminal illnesses which with be dedicated to her: the Chavi Memorial Chronic Illness SIG. This new SIG should open on April 1st.

Absolutely, you can count on me to participate and light a candle for her.

And I think the SIG is a fine, fine way to honor her.

I'll light a candle at 8 pm and it'll burn through the night.
(Those candles usually last about 8 hrs.)

I did a quick correction on Randall's post. He had the day of the week wrong. It's "Wednesday" rather than "Tuesday"

I will be lighting a 24 hour candle at sundown.  It will burn to the socket, as every year.  It is hard to believe it has already been nearly three years.  I can still hear her voice.  The SIG is a beautiful memorial.

I'll be burning a candle for Chavi for several hours that night, including the 8:00-9:00 (Eastern time) hour.

I'm afraid I missed out on the opportunity to know her, but I'd be remiss if I didn't do my part to honor someone so well-loved by so many.  I'll light a candle at 8.

I can't believe it's been 3 years.  Yes, I will definitely plan to participate.

Hard to believe, isn't it?

Chavi was my inspiration when I was diagnosed with cancer a year and a half ago. Her attitude was just so incredible.
