I am sad for you so much, but I hope over time this loss will become easier for you and your families.
She is in the Lords hands now, safe.

Charlene, Karen, Elizabeth, Laura and Dana Knorp...
My gosh... I am so sad to know Kathy has headed on home leaving a large void with the rest of us,. Anyone who had the pleasure/honor to meet or know her was better because of such.
Dancin in the basement in PH, a few years ago, I can hear "Nathan Jones you been gone too long..." She had so much creativity and could best most anyone dancin... so many funny stories and such love.. Help me neighbors, I can't find Shelly... the one time I saw Kathy runnin, lookin toward me, with a fretted look on her face... :) Granny Fisher was outside, hollerin... Kathy saved that night.

Know that the entire Zey clan is so sorry for this loss.
We hope your grief in time lessens in knowing she is in heaven likely instructin the Lord on somethin but she knows he is the leader...
He will follow you till you follow him.
Love to you all. I plan to see you come Thursday.
