Kathy and I met many years ago at work. After I left Wright-Patterson, and though we did not see one another again, our paths continued to cross because she often and patiently helped my team members with work issues. I appreciate and remember her kindness towards everyone, her caring and giving spirit, and her open heart. Kathy was a wonderful person to know. I will miss her. To her family, loved ones, and many friends--May God bless and keep you during this sorrowful time. May you find comfort by remembering her good works and knowing she was loved by many.

Steve, my deepest sympathy for you and your family. I served on several committees @ Aley with Kathy. She was always a very kind and thoughtful woman. Her smile was infectious. Although, I did not know Kathy well, she was a spiritual woman who knew her Heavenly Father. Rest in peace my sister for I will see you again.
