Marianne and I are terribly sorry to hear about Kathy's passing. I didn't know about it until I just happened across it on the web. I know we haven't seen each other in many years, but I wanted to let you know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I'm at a loss for words to describe how much you meant to me, and thank you isn't nearly enough. Every day I'm reminded of how great a person Ms. Kathy was, and she will forever be present in our hearts.
