Tom and family,
Patty and I just found out about the sad news of Kathy’s passing. We are truly sad for you all and feel like something is missing from us as well. Kathy always had a smile. Those Eyes picked up everything, and she enjoyed it all.
We looked through every single picture that you posted, smiling all the while! Life is indeed short.
As we all approach the new beginning (!), we become more aware that we will meet up again. It sure will be fun. In the meanwhile we will miss her a great deal, and our hearts go out to you and all of your wonderful family.
With much love,
Jim and Patty

Jaime and I send our love to everyone. We will miss Aunt Kathy's great smile and wonderful laugh. I have so many fond memories of visiting Virginia when I was young, and all the laughs.
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

I am so saddened to hear the news of Kathy’s passing. I worked with her during elections and enjoyed her so very much. We always laughed and had so much fun and I’m sure going to miss her. My sincere condolences to her family.

Kathy was the sweetest, most caring person we've known. They were with me when Phyllis came out of surgery. While I was still working, she would come to the house, load the washer, fold clothes, water the plants, empty the dishwasher, do whatever and leave a fingernail. What a dynamo! Our most sincere condolence to Tom and the family. She WILL be missed. RIP
