We remained business and personal friends for the past 27 yrs and I treasured you. The world has lost a bright light. I know Heaven has welcomed you with open arms. I hope to see you again one day. RIP!

After so many years apart I’m so glad we found each other on Facebook. I’ll treasure beyond measure the memories of you and theater. You touched my life more than I can say. XxxSuzy

We had the good fortune of meeting Kit and John a few years ago in Newburgh. It was a delightful happenstance that materialized around political issues. Since then we've enjoyed many delightful meals with Kit and John and for the past few years New Years Eve at Biaggis in Evansville. Kit will be sorely missed by us and many others. We loved her laughter and twinkle in her eyes when she discussed family and politics. Blessings to Kit's family now and forever.
