Kate Rogers

Kate slipped peacefully away from us on Monday January, 27th at 3:35 in the morning. I was with her in her last moments. The moment she took flight was filled with both sadness and joy; joy that she was free of the suffering and sadness that I had lost her. I will miss of her every day.

I had often quoted an author Kate liked — Kinky Friedman — who was fond of saying that when people die they step on a rainbow. Kate always thought that was a wonderfully rich image and had thought about it often. I mentioned this to Lisa the morning Kate took flight and several hours later a friend of Lisa’s, who knew none of this, sent her this photo.  The lady who took the picture said the arch of the rainbow was directly over “our” house!

I will always believe that Kate had something to do with that rainbow as a sign she was safe and at home.

I wanted to share this little story with you as it is so much like Kate to leave us with all the colors of the rainbow, colors she loved to paint in, stretched across the morning sky for all to see.

FYI: The Go Fund Me campaign has been wonderful, but we have only met a little more than half our goal. Help is still needed to reach the goal we set, so if you could share with your friends Kate’s Story, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for all your love, prayers and support during this difficult time.

I want to thank each and every one of you, our customers, for being with us and supporting us through nearly a quarter century of business as Greenstone Soap Company. Many of you have been part of our story from the very beginning, and have helped us become the little soap company that could.

Discontinuing our line of people products is hard to do – we love them as much as you do, but that time has come. I will now put all my time and resources into the growth of Shampoochie® dog products. And once again, it is all of you who have helped grow Shampoochie® into the “up-start little bar of dog soap company” that won’t go away. We haven’t hit the big time yet, but with your continued support and sharing of your experience with this product, we will get there.

While all products on the greenstonesoap.com website are no longer available, all of our Shampoochie® products are still available on shampoochie.com.

For those of you who would like to help in this transition you can go to our Go Fund Me (click here) page for additional information regarding our situation, and how you can help.

Thanks to all of you.
