Dear Kevin, Dani, Brittany, Cameron and the entire Alexander Family....what a shock it was for our family to hear about the passing of your mom. We are so deeply sorry and saddened.
Joe and I were remembering so many wonderful things about Kathy, and one that made us laugh and smile was remembering the time that Dani and Kelly and the Bentonville HS girls soccer team beat Mt. Saint Mary in the semi-finals down in Little Rock. Kathy rode back to Bentonville with Joe and me after the game and for 200 miles we couldn’t stop laughing, replaying the game and telling story after story about all of our best soccer times with all of our families. Kathy was on a roll and I think laughed almost all the way home. (And Bentonville went on to win the State championship)
What stands out soooo strong in my memories of Kathy was her beautiful and infectious laugh!! Her eyes sparkled when she laughed. I loved that. She was incredibly special and kind hearted. The O’Connor Family is sending you our love and hugs.
May this memory bring a smile to your face.
We love you 💕😢🙏🏻🤗
Joe, Lori, Kelly, Kasey Jo and Jack

I am truly sorry for your loss. I loved your Momma every time I ran into her she would fill me in on the kids she spoke very proudly of her kids. Kathy was a happy woman very friendly full of love. I remember when we first met your Family it was at St Stephens Church, you all went to school with my kids same ages. I’ve known this beautiful Family for the same amount of time that we moved here from Texas. My prayers are with you,
God Bless all of you ❤️🙏🏼

Mere words cannot express our feeling of sorrow. In our time of need, we seek solace and comfort, yet the answers do not explain our feeling of loss. Our prayer to be given just one more day, one more hour goes unheeded. We are filled with our grief of a loved one who is gone from our presence. Lost in despair, inconsolable, we mourn.

But if we believe that we are given the gift of life, then we must accept that our mortal gatherings are only temporary, our Eternal spirits will continue forever. That is the promise we are given for our Faith. Our loved ones were a gift on loan, but rest assured that one day we will all gather again.

Until that day, revel in the knowledge that each one of us were loved by a unique and remarkable woman. We were blessed to have had Kathy in our lives. She had a special love for each person in her life and she was never shy to say the words, " I love you." I am grateful and thank you for sharing your daughter, wife and mother with each of us.

I pray for the Alexander / Toupal families that the Angels in Heaven watch over you all these coming days.
.....with our love and affection, Zachry & Len Brown

I will never forget her always doing your hair on the sidelines before our games. She never let you play a game with bad hair! She was just so proud of you... You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers...

I grew up down the street from the Alexander’s, and Kathy was always so kind and welcoming to all us neighbor kids. I played soccer with her daughters and she was always so proud and supportive to all of us. She was a joy and blessing to all that knew her.

Kathy was such a sweetheart, and I can’t begin to list all the memories of her on many of the soccer outings... she loved all of us like we were her own children and she always praised us for what we did on and off the pitch... my heart is exceptionally heavy reading of her passing because she was really a truely a team mom... I can’t even begin to relate to the pain you’re feeling but know that a lot of us are right there with you because she was always a bright light every time I’d see her... I will honestly and truly miss her... the world is short an amazing women, but heaven has gained an awesome angel... Rest In Peace Kathy, you were and will always be one of the best second hand moms in my life.
