I was sincerely blessed to have known Kathleen. As her Chiropractor I got to know her and her strong belief in Christ and her loving attitude to all. Strong in conviction and an amazing prayer warrior. I’ll miss her presence on this earth. She’s a shinning example of how to run our race. With much love for Carl and family may she Rest In Peace in the arms of her creator and savior.
