She was my inspiration when I was growing up. I wanted to go to Columbia and be a secretary just like her. I will never forget her laugh no matter how bad things were. She will be missed.

Dear Kathy, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. I have thought about her many, many times over the years. And I will miss her now just as much as ever. I only wish I knew sooner so I could have attended her memorial service. Much love and healing light to all your family.

We are sorry to hear of Aunt Kathleen's passing. I remember visiting with her a lot as a child when she would come to Great-Granddaddy Church's. She had such a wonderful sense of humor, was very crafty, and always had a smile on her face. I will cherish those memories of her. She's in Heaven now reunited with her parents and brothers and sisters. What a party they are having now. With her and Aunt Ethel together again, I know Heaven is overjoyed with laughter.

The pain I am feeling now from losing my Grandma is because of how much love she gave me. It hurts so bad to say goodbye and I am deeply missing my best friend, but her love is worth the pain. I am the luckiest person in this world to have been loved by her. My Grandma was such a special person. Everyone who knew her loved her and she truly loved them. Forever you are my hero and in my heart. ❤❤❤❤
