I worked with Ms. Kitty for a plethora of years. She was one of the most classy ladies of all times. She was my Eastern Star sister and we often had wonderful conversations. I will hold to my memory many of our talks. Until we meet again, we will forever be: F.A.T.A.L. Love you my friend ❤️

I worked with Ms. Kitty for many years. She was an exceptional person and a pleasure to be around. She was a good example for everyone with a kind and classy spirit. She also had a good sense of humor.

We will all miss her at Mobile Greyhound Park and we are saddened at this time.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I love you Ms. Kitty!

Ms. Kitty and I worked together
for 14 years at Mobile Greyhound Racing. I kept in contact with her after she stopped working and I loved our conversations. She was a beautiful woman with a beautiful spirit. I will truly miss her. May she rest in peace. I love you Ms. Kitty.
