Kathy was a friend of ours , we were friends for years. The thing we will always remember will be the light in her eyes and her smile which would light up a room. We had Christmas dinner and I remember the last time I was able to give her a hug and tell her I loved her. She will be missed but never forgotten

I worked with Kathy for many years at BlueCross BlueShield. She was kind, funny and always had a smile on her face. The picture below was from when we took her out for lunch to celebrate her retirement. She will definitely be missed. I'm keeping Danny and the family in my prayers.

I worked with Kathy for many years at BlueCross BlueShield of TN. She was a smart, dedicated professional and it was always a delightful to be around her. She had a magical smile that could lift your spirits on a "bad" day. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Kathy was a beautiful woman who had the most amazing smile. She was one of the smartest lady’s I’ve ever know. Kathy was a talented painter and excelled in acrylics and watercolors. I was hoping to learn from her.
I will miss her laughter and kindness. In fact, I already miss her.
