-Kristi Gochoel-
October 1941-August 2017

Kristi was born from the stars and landed in a community that helped her heal and showed her love.

“We touched each other in meaningful ways. It was a beautiful experience of love. Thank you all.”

Her family would like to share a recent poem of Kristi’s as she continues to lead us on a path of love and light:

     “Weep weep calls
     a toad from the water’s edge
     and I do.
     If grief can be a doorway
     to love then
     Let us all weep for
     the world we are
     breaking apart, so we
     can love it back to
     wholeness again.”

There will be a celebration of Kristi on Saturday, October 21st, 2pm at Beginnings Octagon. Appetizers and desserts are welcome to attend.

If you would like to help Kristi’s longtime partner, Barbara, during this time of emotional and financial transition, you can donate to Barbara Penny account #1443 at the Community Credit Union of Southern Humboldt, or online at GoFundMe.
