Today my team and I dedicate this issue of WE Magazine for Women to a very special woman, someone who touched many lives on her earthly journey. Kathy Dedek. As you will read in our Special Section, Kathy left many people with her legacy of love, admiration and compassion. I would venture to say, she didn’t even know the extent of her legacy to the world. Something many of us never truly do, know or understand.
“The ones who take the time to leave us with fond memories will forever live in our hearts long after they are gone.”
That quote seemed so fitting for this issue of WE Magazine . Saying Goodbye to someone who, over the past two years I came to know and considered a friend has not been easy. Someone whose memory will live in my heart long after she is gone… While she is not the first person I have known or cared about that passed away, her death was sudden and so unexpected that it rocked the world of so many who knew her. Which is why its so important to leave behind those fond memories. To live in the hearts and minds of others after we leave is the gift we give to them… its our legacy. Thank you, Kathy Dedek for being who you were and for all the difference you made in so many lives, including mine!
In addition to our tribute to Kathy, WE have the honor of interviewing 10 of the authors of Allow your Vision to Soar: This Message Just IN! Trusting the Voice Inside You. A huge debt of gratitude is owed to Kimberly West, founder and creator of this book anthology for allowing us to use the image from the back of her book as our cover and for helping me gather these interviews. With her help, WE were able to get 10 amazing interviews from some of the most inspirational women on earth.
