Adieu cousine
Nous avons manqué un si beau rendez-vous.
Je t'aime sans t'avoir vraiment connu mais je t'ai reconnu dans ta musique, dans ta correspondance et dans ta gentillesse palpable.
Je te donne rendez-vous la ou tu demeures maintenant.

I was so saddened to read in the Alumni Magazine of Dr. Kathy Moore's passing. I minored in Music and she was my Music Theory professor in the early 1980's. Of all the professors in both my major and minor, I remember her the best for her joyful outlook on life, her contagious smile and humor, her intelligence, love of teaching and certainly her gifts as a harpist and musician. Her passing is a true loss to so many, and yet her spirit lives on and countless lives have her song in their heart and are so privileged and better for having known her. My heartfelt condolences to her family.

I am a former student who admired her great energy, love for music and teaching. Every day she had a smile and was a great listener. I am saddened to read of her passing in my alumni magazine and am grateful to have been taught by her and am a better musician because of Kathy Moore.
Memory: First day of class she would get us all to sing"Black Water" by the Doobie Brothers to break the ice.

I only had a few months lessons via Skype with Kathy, but she was the best teacher I ever had. I live in Sydney Australia and we had 7am lessons, my time, on a Wednesday. She had a great sense of humour. Very much missed. Julie

I am old friend from high school, very saddened to learn of Kathy's passing. Although I had not connected with her since high school, I have thought of her fondly over the years, usually when I hear the harp. She was the sweetest person, with a wonderful sense of humor. She was a brilliant musician even then. I recall tinkling on her piano one day and, after listening to it for a minute and wincing, she pulled out a tuning wrench and tuned the whole piano, in about twenty minutes --- totally by ear! Although so very sad, I am heartened by how clearly she has touched so many lives with her gifts.

Kathy was not only an incredible teacher and musician, but a great person. She came to my husband and my wedding, and played harp for my brother's wedding. She was so gifted in so many ways. I know a lot of her teaching is going on in her past students and will continue to "spark" students as she did for us. What a great loss to the music world!

Dear Bruce and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of the death of your beloved wife and friend. In all the years since college, I remember Kathy's infectious laugh and her mastery of the harp. I was happy when you married and today I am sad for your grief. Give my best to your family.
