We cherish the memories we have made with Wayne and Kathy being members of Mansfield Riding Club together for over 20 plus years. Kathy was always someone you could turn to for advice, direction, or just be there for you. The early morning front porch phone calls to get our day started, it will just not be the same. To all the Houston family, we pray for each of you as you find your way through this difficult time. We will always hold Kathy near and dear to our heart.
Love,
Glenda and Mike Edmonson

I am so sorry for the loss of Kathy. she was the absolute best Sister-in-law I ever had. I have so many fond memories of her cooking frog legs for our family, her tending and riding her horses, and all the love she constantly showered on her family. My heart goes out to all, and especially Wayne, who was the love of her life.

Dear Wayne and Family ... I grieve with you at the passing of a favorite and dear cousin to me. I have always carried with me such sweet memories of one of my best childhood buddies. I will forever remember Kathleen as a model of calm, goodness, no-nonsense “level-headedness”, and hospitality. And when she met and married you, Wayne, all those wonderful qualities just doubled! I love you all and pray that you may find a generous measure of peace and comfort in your memories and in the caring thoughts of your family and friends. Your cousin, Jim Bob
