Ken & I are very sorry to hear about Mrs Malone’s passing. Your Dad giving her a rose for each year they were married on their recent anniversary really touched me. Awe, the love they must have shared! Stay especially close to him as I know he will miss her most. Hugs & prayers for you, & your sweet family.

Dick, Iam truly sorry for your loss, pain & suffering. To me Katherine was "A Classy Lady" and I will always remember her that way. She always told me I was her favorite niece and that made me feel special. I remember when she & I took swim lessons together (she was so scared of the water) she wouldn't partner with anyone but me. Then the time came when we had to put our head underwater. It took some coaxing but she made me promise not to let her go, and I didn't I think she then realized she could count on me. It made me feel real good that she would put her trust in me. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing that she is happy & pain free. Thinking of you & family.
