Kathy was a very special cousins. Loved the smile and always positive. She and my sister "Chic" went through many physical challenges but never heard complaints and always had their faith, family and friends. She will always be remembered and now she is without pain. Love to the family which she adored.

There are so many wonderful things I could say about my aunt kathy. She was loving, caring, loved everyone and the greatest thing about her she never judged anyone. I will always remember the cakes you would make me & tammy for our birthdays.
