I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Kathy for a number of years and even though I didn't know her that well, she was still a pleasure to know. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time.

Ken, we our so sorry for your loss. Your mother is a very special lady in our hearts. She always made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. I enjoyed the conversations that we had in the past. There was never a silent moment when speaking with her she would make you feel so at ease when talking with her. She will be missed. We love you.

We remember Kathy so fondly as the little girl next door who became our daughter's first baby sitter. We loved her and respected her a lot. We lost contact years ago but have never forgotten her. May God Bless and Keep her and she is looking down watching over her son.
