To Katy's family and friends,

Can't express the sorrow I feel on Katy's passing. I enjoyed working with Katy for many years at the Foxboro Co. She saved my bacon many times!!! We used to share our many stories about her shepherds and my basset hounds. She will be sadly missed.

Kathy was a good member of our team here at Schneider (Invensys). I will always remember her passion for her dogs and her love of Broadway theater. We would have countless discussions about them. Good memories.

While we spent much of our time talking about Molly, I loved chatting with Kathy about the hundreds of shows she'd seen. I also enjoyed the years of working with her at Schneider Electric. She'll be missed.
