Diane, you have been family and Kerrin has been a sister to me for 25 years. I have so many great memories of us traveling, hiking, cooking, going to gym, going for walks, having sleepovers and laughing constantly. She had a heart of gold and left a lasting impression on everyone she met. Such a beautiful woman, soul with so much to offer and taken from us to soon. She will always be with us in spirit and her legacy will live on. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Love always, Mattie

Dear Mrs McCarthy,
I am so sorry for your loss. I am one of three sisters your daughter befriended many years ago. I can’t begin to tell you how many good memories we all have with your beautiful daughter. I can also tell you of many times she was there for us or helped my family in one way or another. She was beautiful inside and out. and she will be forever missed.

Dear Diane,
Kerri always made me laugh while we did Pilates! Her energy and beautiful laugh was contagious. It reminded me of us playing pickle ball and not knowing how to keep score, we just laughed. I hope you can find comfort is all the beautiful memories you shared. I am keeping you in my heart and sending prayers of comfort and strength during this difficult time. God bless you.
