Kathleen taught me so much. I will never forget her. I cherish her memory. Her family was her pride and joy. Each time we met for writing, she would have a funny story to tell me about one of her boys or one of her grandchildren. She loved meeting with them at their little house in the woods to teach them about the Bible. Kathleen filled me with stories about the travels she and Bob experienced during their life. She often told me the story of how she met Bob. He was her knight in shining armor. She was a true kindred spririt to me. I'm sorry I lost touch with her, my fault. I'll never forget her.
