I am so sorry to hear about Kathy. I can never remember a time when she wasn’t smiling. What an amazing woman. May she have a wonderful rest knowing when she opens her eyes she will see Jesse.

Love you

Dear precious friends, I am deeply saddened at the loss of this beautiful woman. I have so many wonderful memories of times spent hanging out with y'all. I always felt so welcome! Kathy meant so much to her children's friends, like a second mom. You are all so very special to me and I hate that I'm not really able to travel back "home" to be with you in this difficult time. Benny you were my best buddy growing up and I am so thankful to have had such a great friend to grow up with. I am also grateful to have had so many great times with you all through church, youth, and camp. I'm sending much love and hugs across the miles. I dearly love you all!
