Extending my deepest sympathy and prayers to the family of Kathy. I met Kathy while I worked a part-time job at GSI and always found her to be very friendly and helpful. I also ran into her at the local trade show about a year ago and only a few months ago checked her out at Kroger. She never changed -- was still the friendly individual with a smile on her face! May each and every member of her family find comfort and peace from the Lord and your many family members and friends during this difficult time.

The first time I meet Kathy our brother Dennis brought her to my sister's house in Greensboro and I was spending the weekend with her. Well Dennis left Kathy alone with 2of his sisters and we gave her the third degree. Luckily for him we didn't scare her off. She was a great sister in law and we miss her greatly already
