Kathryn (Munson) Toscano (1960 - 2010)

After Apple Picking
by Robert Frost
My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree
Toward heaven still.
And there's a barrel that I didn't fill
Beside it, and there may be two or three
Apples I didn't pick upon some bough.
But I am done with apple-picking now. 

On Saturday, March 20th, my 1st cousin once removed, Kathryn (Munson) Toscano, passed away.  Separated by the breadth of the country and a generation, our paths crossed only once or twice.  Yet, I feel especially sad to say goodbye to Kathie, as she is from a younger generation and has left us much too soon.

I began today's post with words from Robert Frost.  *Robert Frost is a 6th great grandson of Nicholas Noyes (1615-1701) of Wiltshire, England and Newbury, Massachusetts.  Kathie is a 9th great granddaughter of Nicholas Noyes.
