My heart is saddened to learn of the passing of Kathy this morning. She and I graduated together along with our friends in the MHS Class of 1978. She was so kind and sweet and so meek, but always with a smile and tender heart. The years slip by but the friendship and memories remained. Rest peacefully, little lady.
