Sorry for your loss. I enjoyed volunteering with Kathleen at Frye Regional Hospital. Jean Forbes

I did not know Kathleen for very long, but she was always nice to me. I am a fellow volunteer at Frye Hospital. We would talk and I would watch her knit pot holders, dish cloths, and I was always interested in watching her because I can not knit. I told her she made it look so easy, but I am left handed and no one would teach me. She finished one of her pot holders one day when we were talking and she gave it to me. I thanked her, and I have it in my kitchen and will always think of her and how nice she always was to me. I am very sorry for your loss. Abbie Hollar
