Thanks GLW. Not sure it should have won but I appreciate the sentiment behind it - that it was because of Kath.

Thanks shredder. There's not a day I don't think about her and wish she was here.

Strange thing is I didn't know anyone was missing and didn't even know she'd gone out. It was a total shock to hear about it a few days later.

Thanks spiderwebb.

Thanks Graeme.

It was a year ago tomorrow Kath went off for a walk in the hills and never returned.

Thinking very much of her family at this sad time.
