Karen S. Kenworthy Passed Away April 12th 2011

Albeit I neither met nor spoke with Karen Kenworthy (original web page); which I often thought of doing yet hesitated for precisely the reasons I started this sentence, I received and read her newsletters and source code for well over a decade. Before that, her articles in "Windows Magazine" which ended publication many years passed. The photograph of her in that magazine initiated my fondness for Karen; there was something there which I simply liked.

Toward the end of the first decade of the 2000s, her newsletters became infrequent and I worried that she believed no one read them; in response to which I wanted to write and reassure her that I read each one.

Regret is born of unfulfilled intentions. I received one last issue of "Karen's Power Tools Newsletter April 25, 2011" in which Karen's brother wrote of her death on April 12th 2011 for which I felt as if struck in the chest with a baseball bat.
