Buster called me yesterday to tell me about Kathryn's passing. I loved her as much as if she were family. We enjoyed many a day talking about our love for daylilies and the last time we spoke I said that when she was feeling better that I planned to come see her and her gorgeous garden.
My heart and prayers go out to all that knew and loved her. She was one special, classy lady who was all heart. Rest in Peace, Kathryn, among the beautiful gardens in heaven.

Dear Buster and Family,

I only heard today through Aunt Doris that Kathryn had passed. I am so sorry for your loss.
Kathryn was such a sweet, kind lady and was loved by so many especially the Toney family. My mother, Margaret Hall Toney, is 96 and lives with me. She sends her sympathy and love. Mother and Daddy, Willard Toney, loved Kathryn and enjoyed each and every visit they had together. I have such fond memories of gatherings at the Weaver's and Aunt Della's yeast rolls. I appreciated so much your coming to Mother's 90th birthday party. My our Lord and Savior give you the strength, peace, and comfort you need for the days ahead.

Love and prayers,
Ann Toney Heard

I met Kathryn at FRMC about 15 years ago. I worked in outpaient therapy and she came for pool therapy. Wow what a blessing she was. She would bring me a cutting of her beautiful daylilies each time she came. One day she said I want you and some of the girls to take your lunch hour and come to my home and see my lilies. So one day Julie and I did that. They were so beautiful and we toured the log cabin and had a sandwich on the steps outside. Then she dug up serveral kinds of daylilies and brought them to me with a label on each. I now have beautiful daylilies from her and I still have each tag that she labeled. Its so ironic I just said to my husband last week, I need to see if I could find out her address and send her some pictures of my lilies, she would be proud. Then I was saddened to read about her passing in the news paper. I'm am so happy God sent her to befriend me if only for a short time. I will attach a picture.

Buster, Terry, Jill, and all the families, our deepest sympathy for the loss of a dear wife, mother, and grandmother. Kathryn will be missed by all who knew her. I think of the wonderful Weaver reunion she hosted almost two years ago. It was wonderful to see and spend time with all of you. I was hoping to enjoy another one, but she is having a great reunion in heaven with all who have gone before. I am sure we will have a great reunion when we all get there. We pray that the Lord will wrap his loving arms around each of you. We pray he will comfort you; and help you and bless you in the days ahead. Please know we are lifting you all up in prayer during this great loss. May God be with you all.

Blessings and Prayers,
Tommy and Pat Davis

Barbara and I have had the privilege of knowing Mrs. Bledsoe for the past 5 years. We have enjoyed our visits and their generous gifts of Daylillies. Our yard is now filled with the beauty she and Buster shared. My condolence and prayers to the family as you go through this difficult time!
