I was visiting with a friend on Facebook and we were just talking about what a sweet person Kathy was. I was in Choraleers with her sr. year. She was very talented. I had hoped to see her at the reunion and just found this page. My condolences to your family. She was a kind and happy person and made everyone feel special. Sincerely, Catherine Schowalter

Pat, I just happened to look you up on the internet and found that Kathy had passed away. Scott and I are deeply saddened to learn this and our hearts and prayers go out to you and your beautiful family. We had such a wonderful, but quick visit with Kathy on our way to New Orleans a year ago. We are so thankful that we got to see her, and enjoyed our phone visit with you. I still cherish our "friends forever" picture frame from our Williamsburg trip with the kids, when she was expecting Grayson. We have some wonderful memories to keep this special lady in our hearts. God Bless.

I am so sorry for your loss. Kathy and I were in Drill Team, Choraliers dance group and Chorale together in High school. She was a sweet, sweet soul and a people person. She always seemed to have a full schedule and life and she was loved by everyone I knew, including me. My prayers go out to her family in the hard days ahead.
