I will cherish all the wonderful memories we had hanging out at the house with Tammy, Kenny and Kathie. Lots of laughing and singing. Prayers for the entire family. Cherish all the fond memories and pray for peace and comfort.

Dear, Kathie,

You were always the fun mom. You even let us call you "Kathie." I remember so many evenings sitting across from you in your living room, just talking and talking. You were easy going with just the right amount of concern and advice-never too much. You were never distracted by something more important, because WE were the most important--Tammy, Kenny, and their friends. You always gave your full attention to us, and your laughter was part of the fun. I love that no matter what we said or did, you continued to listen, to love, and to never judge. You will be missed. Love Kim "Provost" Tomsic.
