    Craig, you are in my thoughts. I hope you continue life with the same zest and find solace with Karin living in your heart. Cherish the memories.

  2. Dear Craig, I found Karin's blog when I was diagnosed with Hodgkins last summer. I read one July 2012 blog post and immediately went back and started at her beginning. She didn't know me but she became my friend. I looked to her posts for help, guidance, inspiration and validation of so many of my own feelings. I will miss your beautiful wife everyday. I am so sorry for your loss and the loss of the longer life she should have had. Love, Sarah

  3. Dear Craig, there are no words that I can really say. I wish only to thank you for allowing those who loved and admired Karin from a distance to participate in remembering her spirit and honesty through the sharing of her words. God bless you. Leanne P.

  4. Craig,
    The celebration of life was such a great celebration in Karin's honor. I wouldn't wanted to be at any other place last Saturday. Thanks for allowing me to be part of this celebration, and may GOD bless you, her parents, family, and friends who had the honor to be part of her life.

  5. Craig
    I don't have the words but I am with you. May God bless you and your family.

  6. What a wonderful tribute. Thank you for making this book available to those of us who have followed Karin's journey through her blog.

  7. Thank you for making the book available to strangers. What a generous gesture in Karin's honor.
    I check back here every couple of days, I don't know what I expect to find, maybe that she isn't really gone, I don't know.
    I'm beyond sorry for your loss.
    Holly from Arizona.

  8. My heart is saddened and heavy for your loss. I met Karin several years ago at wedding in Miami and remembering dancing the night away with her. She was so full of life and will be missed dearly by many far and near. I hope that you can find some peace through your memories of her and her beautiful words. Love, Michele

  9. Thank you for making these available Craig. I found Karin's blog last year when a close friend of mine was diagnosed and I read faithfully. Karin was a very special woman and an inspiration to many. I can't imagine the pain of her loss in your lives. Sarah B.

  10. Karin was and will always be an inspiration. Her blog was a safe haven for me while I wrote a play about my and other young adult survivors of cancer experiences. In times when it was so hard to return to memories of diagnosis and treatment or find words for those experiences, I would sign on to Karin's blog and she would be a beacon of hope --- an amazing source of words...poetry, really.

    Even after completing the play, I have returned to Karin's blog time and time again to be reminded how one should live life --- fully, deeply, and with so much gratitude.

    Thank you so much for continuing her spirit through the blog, Craig. Karin, you, and your families and friends will forever be in my heart and prayers.

    Jill Harrison-Snyder

  11. Great write up and wonderful post. I love to read your post very much. Please keep sharing with us !!

  12. Craig, I don't know if you even check here anymore, but I hope you see this.
    I received the book of Karin's quotes several weeks ago, and wanted to thank you.
    My son looked at the envelope and said "Who's Craig Diamond?" I said remember the blog I was following, and she passed away? He did remember, because the day I read about it, I gasped out loud and my son asked what was going on. I started to cry...
    When I opened the envelope, and saw the photos of Karin, I burst into tears. I never met her, but felt I knew her through her writing. She really made an impact on me, and I will never forget her.
    Thank you for the beautiful gift of her quotes and photos, it is a fitting tribute to such a wonderful soul.
    Hugs from my heart,

  13. Thinking of your family ....and thinking of Karin.....

  14. Craig, I don't even know how to express my sorrow.. I see you almost every day and I still don't know how to tell you how much Karin is my thoughts and how much I wish I could help.

    Hi. I'm an ex colleague of the extremely bastard criminal Daniel "Danny" Hegglin ex Morgan Stanley and today i really would like "to empty the bag". My name is Massimo, i'm not english native, so, i'm not mother language as you will well see. But i'll write in my best possible english ( in more or less just an hour i have at disposal, to do it). I worked for many years in London, with the killing Hooligans of worldwide stock exchanges of Morgan Stanley (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/122335.Fiasco). Elbow to elbow with this absolute Jack the Ripper of international finance who is this really stinky shameless criminal Daniel "Danny" Hegglin, now working by an immense Mafia Money Launderer Box called 4th dimension in Hong Kong http://hk.linkedin.com/pub/danny-hegglin/61/277/931 ( this very lousy crook of Daniel "Danny" Hegglin changes his name on the net from Dan to Danny to Daniel, continuously: typical of those who have lot of criminal things to hide, typical move of stinky delinquent, typical move of "dark gray"collars, i wd say, more than white ones)! I saw with my eyes, i repeat, i saw with my eyes, this bastard mega corrupted, better to say, corru-p-ig and also corru-piig, Daniel Hegglin, getting 100.000, 200.000, 300.000 pounds, cash, put in handbgas. Inside various pubs close to Morgan Stanley offices in Canary Wharf. Cause of immense insider dealings and sometimes even insider tradings he passed to colossal Cosa Nostra's money launderers like Ennio Doris and Massimo Doris from Banca 'Mafiolanum, Camorranum, Ndrangolanum, Nazistanum, Mediolanum' ( not for nothing, bank, "in fact", totally owned by disgusting pedophile and nazimalavitoso dictator Silvio Berlusconi.. and so... bank controlled by Cosa Nostra; Silvio Berlusconi, Marina Berlusconi and Mafia are same assassin shit since the 60's; since much more than half century; since verminous criminal Berlusconi's father, Luigi Berlusconi, used to wash oceans of killing Cosa Nostra's money in Banca Rasini; 'coincidentally' closed down by American Dea, cause was the bank of the most murderous gangs of half world, and not just sicilian world http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banca_Rasini). Same cash and for same reasons, he used to get from another bastard super delinquent, close to lot of Mafia and NaziRacist international organizations: Paolo Barrai. Having an extremely fascist, mafia money laundering ( via Finter Bank Lugano, via Panama, via Dubai, via Marbella, via bitcoins) and inciting murdering violence blog called Mercato 'Merdato' Libero (very criminal excrement Paolo Barrai having already been condemned to big fines or jail, many times; by Consob; by Court in Milan; maybe, also by Court in Biella; and incredibly by Court in Porto Seguro, Brazil; where they want him now for many years in prison.. for this reason, Hitlerian "jailbird" Paolo Barrai sometimes write of Brazil.. but never put a feet in Brazil anymore). Same cash and for same reasons, he used to get from another well known corruptor, stinking Al Capone of Italian Bourse: Attilio Ventura, not for nothing, now in 'Mafiaset Hitlerset Mediaset' board http://www.mediaset.it/investor/governance/organi/scheda_9_it.shtml

    And used to get other very criminal money from Francesco Perilli now heading Equita Sim Milan. And from 100s and 100s of other brokers all over Europe. Basically, if "Mussolinian Hooligans" from Morgan Stanley (like another verminous shameless criminal: Michael Chinnick, now washing lot of mega mafia cash by Mandarin Capital; again, "wow, what a coincidence", Hong Kong: https://www.mdncapital.com/about-us) had to buy, for example, lot of Fiat, in Milan, "Jack the Ripper" Daniel Hegglin used to call "with his private mobile phone another private mobile phone" ( to circumvent the recording of calls, obviously). Belonging to one of noisome maggots above mentioned. And used to say 'Ehy you my big Mafia Banker Ennio Doris.... you know, when you come next week to London.. can you take me that Armani's tie i love so much with code n3124? Thank you'? Obviously, the translation of this sort of "full of swastika" secret language given in the pub was 'n' = buy, '3124' = Fiat ( "Jack the ripper', extremely rotten malavitoso Daniel Hegglin used to give to all his corrupting worms a list with all the european stocks, with close to any of them, a number: 3124, obviously was for Fiat). Choleric escrement Ennio Doris used to answer on the phone "yes Danny, certainly, thank you, actually, thank you". Then started to buy 1.000.000 Fiat for himself ( from his swiss bank account, in very criminal Arner Bank Lugano, "obviously", again: pls google "vado riciclo e torno" that means "i go, i wash lot of killing mafia cash and i'll be back", bout mega mafia money launderings done by Ennio Doris and Massimo Doris from Banca Mediolanum http://espresso.repubblica.it/palazzo/2008/05/15/news/vado-riciclo-e-torno-1.8408). Then, "Hooligan"of Finance ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Partnoy) Morgan Stanley, used to arrive via "Jack the Ripper" Daniel Hegglin to buy 15.000.000s of Fiat in just one day. And immense gains to be shared 50 50 were made! Is also a bastard racist, part of many worldwide Ku Kluk Klan, bastard nazist Daniel Hegglin.

    Is also an extremely pervert satanist. He said many times, to me and many people "there is nothing wrong on fucking a boy or a girl who is 12 years old, i do it, i do it, i do it and even often... on the other hand... in the second or third world it happens every day... young female children.. there .. get pregnant at 12.. so i fuck lot of boys and girls, while they are 12... here in London.. or in my native Switzerland.. i pay and i do it". As mentioned, is also a repulsive nazifascist ( he organized the Edward Snowden's hideout in Hong Kong, where he now launders immensely killing Triade Cash out of a very delinquent Box called "4th dimension" http://hk.linkedin.com/pub/danny-hegglin/61/277/931; and used to organize lot and lot of international murders made via various extreme right worldwide public and private intelligence agencies.. google 'daniel hegglin wikileaks' bout it, pls: http://search.wikileaks.org/gifiles/?viewemailid=3541810). In his houses there were hundreds of gadgets, books, videos full of love for Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Augusto Pinochet, Francisco Franco, Alfredo Stroessner. But also very full of passion and love toward many nazifascist mega killing terrorists like The Skinhead International, Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging, Alan Berg, Combat 18, Nuclei Armati Rivoluzionari, Order of Flemish Militants, Ordine Nuovo, White Order of Thule. This is the bastard extreme criminal Daniel "Danny Hegglin", not for nothing, fired by Morgan Stanley, fired by TT International, fired by Puricore and many other working places. And if Google wil put the head down to him, will be the end of internet, will begin an era of bastard killing nazism all over the world, "ops, what a coincidence", what very fascist Vladimir Putin, Morgan Stanley, Jp Morgan ( who used to finance who killed 6 millions people: Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini... never forget, please), as well as Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging, Alan Berg, Combat 18, Nuclei Armati Rivoluzionari, Order of Flemish Militants, Ordine Nuovo, White Order of Thule exactly want! Massimo. For many years Morgan Stanley London. What i wrote is what i saw and with my own eyes. For many many many years! Nazifascist part of Cia, on order of ModerNazifascist Morgan Stanley will kill me now? Better to die as a martyr, meant as a real man ( not certainly meant as other terrorists, like the islamic ones, mean). Who call things with the exact their name! So that the good may have more chances to win the evil. Better to die as a martyr, meant as a real man, than being falsely alive as a passive, amorphous, scared man made diarrea. Massimo a death man walking, now, BUT A REAL (death) MAN (walking).

  18. I still occasionally drop by here, read old posts. Wonder how it's possible that there are no new posts from Karin....she truly touched my life, a stranger.
