Katie's Family,
Your neighbors grieve with you.

“We can’t know why the lily has so brief a time to bloom in the warmth of sunlight’s kiss upon its face before it folds into its fragrance and bids the world good night to rest its beauty in a gentler place. But we can know that nothing that is loved is ever lost and no one who has touched a heart can really pass away because some beauty lingers on in each memory of which they’ve been a part.”

Please don't be insensitive. While I understand your points and agree with you about the media coverage, it doesn't change the grief that those of us that knew Kate are feeling. This is a beautifully written tribute to a wonderful person who grew up in Pleasanton - from Walnut Grove to Amador, from Girl Scouts to softball leagues - and who will be dearly missed by her friends, family and former classmates.

@mattias: "1/10 of all homicides last year in california were committed by cops (all with firearms)."

Perhaps you meant 1/10 of all gun deaths were committed by police? I seriously doubt that you meant "1/10 of all homicides". A "homicide" is the unlawful killing of a person, that is, a murder.

Firstly to Kate's family and friends, prayers for your sorrow. May your truly amazing angel rest in peace. It is so sad and unfair that she was taken so young, with so much left to offer and give to others, by someone who does nothing but harm others. To those who would come here and make racist comments as have been made, and defile her memory, GO AWAY. Spread your non-sense elsewhere. This is not a national news article, this is a local community article about her memorial to honor her. Your insensitive negative comments are disgraceful, shame on you.

I second Mark's thoughts. This article is about matters more personal than national debates. It's about remembering a young woman loved by family and friends. Political comments are out of place here.
