Dear Gloria, Steve, Jason, Kristen, Eric, Addison, and Ethan,

We are thinking of you with love during this challenging time and praying for you all. In Jesus' words, "Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted." (Matthew 5: 4) can be a healing thought. Translated by J.B. Phillips... "How happy are those who know what sorrow means for they will be given courage and comfort."
Kathy loved life and and I know she continues on in that life. I am grateful that I have so many good memories of her and the wonderful times we shared. I found a photo of one of those times that I think also expresses the love Kathy and Steve have for one another that also spread to their family.

Kathy was such a warm, kind, sweet person! When I was 17, and she was a little older, and had a cute little silver car - a pinto, I think,- we drove all around Laconia so she could teach me to shift a standard! Always laughing when we were together...I haven't seen her often the last few years, but will always remember her humor and sweetness... My love goes to her family. I pray their good memories will help overcome grief. She is gone much too soon.

Kathy was always smiling. She was a very sweet woman. I will miss our mini vacations together in the islands. I still can see you floating in the Bimini blue waters. I can't believe you are gone. You will be missed.
