Kathleen's warm smile and beautiful twinkling eyes are what I will remember although I will miss her deeply. Kathleen was my father's first cousin, and she was very close to my grandmother. She was a fixture in my childhood. The last time I saw her was when she paid respects at my father's funeral. Despite being frail, she was there holding my hand. She was a very special, very beautiful soul.

I have known my second grandmother - what I considered MiMi for over 20 years. Words can’t explain how I am going to miss her, (the grandmother to my dearest friend in the world, Angie) the quality time we shared when I visited at her home will always be embraced and cherished in my heart forever. She showed me and my husband amazing kindness, friendship, and love.

I will never forget all the laughs we shared and the quality time watching television will always be memorable to me...We love you so much and will miss you.

Love you forever and always, Lee and Chuck ❤️
