God looked around his garden
And found and empty space
Then he looked upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He pit his arms around you
And lifted you to rest
God's garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best.
Rest in peace Kathy... you will forever be missed and in our hearts. We will always love you.

Words cannot express the sorrow I have in my heart for the REED family. I've felt the pain through my chats with Rhonda over the last couple years as I've had to deal with losses with my own family during this same time period. I've prayed much for God's will be done over many months now for Kathy's healing.

To be in the arms of Christ is far better than suffering here in this life. I'll still continue to pray for the family during this time for healing of hearts that you all will be able to move forward after Kathy's suffering has ended.

God Bless and HUG's to you all.
