My apologies for not sending a handwritten note; I didn't have an address. I work with the Mayo Clinic Health Policy Center, and had the great pleasure of working with Kathy while arranging the interview with Time Magazine. I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my brief acquaintence with Kathy -- she was a gracious, charming, immensely smart woman. In our short interview, and subsequent phone visits, I learned so much from Kathy -- she had a generous outlook on life. Kathy was so proud of her son, and so thankful to see him doing well in his life. She spoke about how grateful she was to be close to her family. I sent Michael Grunwald, the Time Magazine reporter, a note to let him know that Kathy had passed. He asked me to extend his condolences along with mine. He is still hoping to write an article more focused on end-of-life care, and to be able to share much of what Kathy told him in the interview. I'm so pleased to have had the opportunity to know Kathy -- even for a short time. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Jane Jacobs
