RIP KATHARINE HEPBURN :: May 12, 1907 - June 29, 2003
She was Miss Hepburn— Aunt Kat— Kate— Kathy (to Spencer Tracy). She was all of those depending upon your relationship. And she was also Katharine. With an ‘A’.
She was loyal— demanding— pure and purely demanding— open— reserved— formally informal— proud— intimidating— exasperating— funny— touching. She was a worker— a riser above everything— passionate in her likes and dislikes— saying what she thought but keeping herself to herself— loving— sentimental— a love of beauty— of nature. She was there for all who needed her— really needed her and were in need. She was especially, wonderfully, uniquely, one of a kind.
For all she was— has been— has given on all levels— publicly or privately— she enhanced this life.
— Lauren Bacall
