I have many beautiful memories as a child spending time with Aunt Kathleen and Uncle Eddie. It gives me some comfort to know that she is with him now and her daughter Donna. For many years they took on vacations to Myrtle Beach. They showed me a lot of love in and attention when I needed it the most. I pray for some peace and comfort for her family during this time. RIH sweet Aunt Kathleen 💓💓💓
