Her name was Deborah Kotler, but she was known universally as Flash Silvermoon.
She was 'North Florida's favorite psychic,' as described in a published article. She was a flamboyant character with flowing red hair and a penchant for colorful costumes which she flaunted dramatically. In fact, drama was a vital part of the essence of Flash's life.
She was a psychic, whose readings startled her customers with their accuracy, a mistress of the tarot cards, a musician, a wiccan, a feminist, astrologer and teacher -- among her many roles and talents. She could communicate with animals, to the extent that she could heal their ailments, as she healed the many people who went to her for surcease and to understand what their lives were about and what the universe had in store for them in the future.
Flash died Dec. 15 of renal failure at the age of 67. She lived in Melrose, Florida, in a home and sanctuary which she called 'Moonhaven.' A Celebration of her Life is being held on January 13th at 3pm at Moonhaven 7603 N.E. 221st Street Melrose, Florida. All are welcome.
