Words can not express the sadness of this day. MK McKown passed away around 5am this morning. She was diagnosed with cancer a year and a half ago. MK was a woman with incredible integrity, faith, commitment and love. She felt her way through every decision in life, from having her two beautiful daughters at home, to battling cancer the best way she could. I am shocked and vulnerable, having to let go of one of "my" mothers. She always talked about how birthing was a similar doorway to death, wanting to midwife herself through this. Time stands still. We love you, MK. We are already lonely.
