This picture was taken at the SECU Guest House in Winston Salem during Kathy's cancer treatment. She suffered from cancer at the base of her tongue. In February, 2015, she underwent a neck dissection and they placed a trachea and feeding tube. She had the best attitude. She never complained. Kathy was not my sister in-law; she was my sister, my friend and my partner in crime! It took both of us to keep her brother straight. I will miss her with every fiber of her being. I loved my sweet girl. She has her wings now. Fly high baby! This is not good bye; this is see you later.... Connie South
