I met Army Veteran Kathleen McKenzie in 2005 at my office (Veteran Services) in Xenia, Ohio. Over the next 10 years or so, Kathleen would call on me if she ever needed assistance. She never asked for hardly anything. She had a great sense of humor. She believed strongly in helping others. She always appreciated whatever you could or couldn't do to help her. When I received the call today, I wasn't able to continue talking. I miss Kathleen already.
May she rest in peace.
Your Friend, Melvin
