  1. Kate,

    Thanks for utilizing your writing skills to preserve the memory and eulogize the air passenger’s passing. Your event documentation may prompt better preparation and handling of onboard cardiac arrests in the future, helping someone else. I’m an ER MD, and would be happy to communicate with anyone who cares to do so. God is always in full control; we can only do what is possible with the resources available, God being our Helper and the Ultimate Determiner of life. Friend me if you will.

  2. Kate I just read your account for NY Times of the in-flight medical emergency you and your daughter experienced. It was an amazing account and one I appreciate very much. Your last line was particularly poignant for the experience and speaks volumes about our culture around death and dying, often at a loss for words.
