Tami Starlight requested that I forward the following, regarding the passing of someone who was very helpful and loved by the trans community in BC. The Facebook event is for a memorial being held on Wednesday, December 9, 2009:
Catherine White was one of the 6 who perished off Saturna Island 9 days ago.
She was a counselor & advocate to many LGBT2IQ Canadians/Vancouverites over the 15 to 20 years. Unsure of the exact amount of years.
Greatly compassionate and down to earth woman.
Proud to call her a friend and a fellow counselor.
She counseled me when I was beginning my transition and gave 110%.
(this was back in 2001)

Also the others we lost on that flight. Quite something.
Namaste/All my relations
