Kitty was married to my second cousin, Dudley. Over the years I would see her at family gatherings. She had a special place in her heart for my parents(Paul and Mary Galleher) and for Helena Naylor(Aunt Dickie). I visited her several times at her Bowie home when I lived on the West Coast and she would love to take me out to lunch and "visit". She will be deeply missed. Take care during this difficult and sad time for your family.
