We were so sad to hear about Kathy’s passing. She was a god neighbor here at Village Charmant. Our monthly Coffee Social will not be the same without her. Our deepest condolences to Kathy’s family. May she rest in peace.

Kathy was a dear friend. We met at Village Charmant and she immediately took me under her feisty wing. She showed me exceptional kindness, accompanying me to several events. I really enjoyed sitting on her back porch and chatting while our dogs had a play date. It was my pleasure to know her, and she will be sorely missed. My deepest condolences go to her family and I send prayers to them as they grieve this significant loss to their family. God bless you.

I met Ms Boeta at Sunrise Senior Living of Baton Rouge. What a smile she shared at all times even when she felt her worst. All of the residents instantly took to her, and of course my pet who i would bring to work daily. Pebbles knew she was someone who had a lot of love in her heart. I wasn't sure she liked dogs, but she sure enjoyed being involved in the birthday celebration i had for her. When she left the facility a part of her was left with me. I can't and never have regret being a part of care management; it's because of people like her. I finally got a change to see and experience an Angel that lived on earth. Thank you for bringing joy, laughter, love and kindness to all of the residents, staff and of course my pet. You will be missed.

Kevin & Brad,
We were sad to her of Kathy’s passing. We always felt like family around your parents, from the St. Patrick’s Day parades to hanging on the river. We are sure she is at peace with your Dad. She will be missed. We are praying for you both, and the rest of the family.
Rest In Paradise.

Kevin & Brad
We are so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was truly one of a kind. We always enjoyed the time we spent together while we were neighbors in Park Forest. I remember our camping trips and the trip to Pensacola Florida. She was always so much fun. At least you know she is now with your Dad in Heaven Forever.

We send our condolences to you also on the passing of your sister. She was so much fun to be around and we will always have those memories.
Tony and Pat Guzzardo.
