Your mom taught a Bible study in my neighborhood when I was 10. I admired her so much. She taught us that we were all valuable and with God all things are possible. God rest her soul - she was wonderful.

Kathy was always a part of my life. From hosting my Mom’s baby shower for me, to supporting me at school events, going on Panera dates, or even my high school graduation dinner (pictured below.) We had countless conversations and I treasure all of them. I always loved our chats when I would help her around the house, she was always willing to listen, give advice, and of course offer prayer. I loved Miss Kathy and I’m so grateful I closely knew her.

Kathy and I had such fun during the summers when we were young. We would spend a week together at her house and then later at my house. She was such a fine Christian lady.

I loved how my mom was always there to lay hands on me and pray or pray over things for me that most people would find stupid. I had so many good travel memories, memories of us talking for hours. You were my best friend and I love you with all my heart! I love this pic of you and you smiling so happy because you loved school buses! Love you mom!
