Kathy was my first cousin, we grew up next door. My fondest memory is when all the cousins would get together on Sunday afternoons to play softball or kickball. Those were great times! We all grew up and time passed. I didn't get to see Kathy that often but when I did she always told me she loved me as I did her. She had her mother's heart. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Praying for God's peace, comfort, and strength in the coming days , weeks and months ahead. I love you all

me and Kathy were so close as children we were inseparable if I wasn't at her house she was at ours. I remember me and Kathy playing in front of the house one day in a spot that always flooded when it rained when Kathy handed me a mason jar and told me it smelt bad and to smell it so I took off the lid and took a sniff when Kathy started laughing and confessed she had farted in the jar and sealed the odor inside. lol I know this story will make someone smile! It didn't matter what we were doing we always had so much fun, running around in the woods, playing yard games, or trying to sneak apples or strawberries out of mamaw and papaws yard, we were always together.

Kathy was not only my cousin, but also a friend. They lived next door so growing up and we played everyday. As we all do, we grow up, life happens and we don't see each other as much as we'd like. But, every time we saw each other it was like time never happened. She was always so happy to see me, as I was her. Can't believe she has gone on, but I know she is happy with aunt Frances. Prayers for uncle Henry, kids and grandkids. Love you all.
