Could you write about Phscyis so I can pass Science class?

First of all, we want you to know how sorry we are for your loss. We've known Kathy since 2009 when our mother became a resident at Kingston. Kathy became close to not only our mother, but my sister & I also, & we all grew to love her. After our mother died, we continued to visit Kathy. We also visited her the times she became hospitalized. I believe Kathy is in heaven because I know she believed in the Lord & trusted in Him. We are so glad we met Kathy and we will miss her too. God bless you - her family - and may He give you peace and comfort during this sad time.

We knew Kathy from the time she was an employee at The Salvation Army. She was so wonderful with the children and the parents. I am sorry that her life was short--she had much to contribute! God bless you, her family and friends, as we go through this loss.

I am so sad to have to give my condolences here. I knew Kathy when she was working at the Salvation Army after school program, back in 1994-5. She took care of my kids while I was busy going to college. I thank her for all she did, plus I was able to get to know her personally. She often talked about her mother and brothers very fondly. Knowing her and memories of her will never leave my mind. She touched people in so many ways.
