My sister was the strongest person I know, and never gave up, aways kept her boxing gloves on till the very end. She Aways had a positive attitude, never complain even when she was in pain. When she was home she put all of her things in order with complete directions what was First and Last. Because that was Kathy. Aways thinking about others. She said she still had a lot of things she wanted to accomplish here before her time was up, but God had other plans for her. I Hope when my time comes to leave I can be as strong as my sister was in her FIGHT! I Love u so Much, you will Aways be with me. Your footprints are left in stone, a Beautiful Dynasty You Left Behind. I’M VERY PROUD OF YOU SIS💞

Auntie you left us too soon. I am going to miss you so dearly. You lived each day with such grace. You are an inspiration to me. You made me strive to reach to the sky and if you work hard enough you can conquer anything. You were such a caring loving person that cared for everyone that you came across, a true angel. We all had the best Christmas’s together with you filming every special moment together as a family. I remember all those basketball horse games that you kicked Ryan and I butt’s in your backyard. From time to time I’ll go shoot some hoops in your backyard with you. I know you are with Grandma and Ryan and everyone up there smiling down on us. Now you can have your own petco up in Heaven now. Send us a shooting star and a red cardinal from time to time, okay. I love you so much Auntie. You will never me forgotten. Your nephew always Eric Motzny

To my dear long-time friend, Kathy,

oh, how sad i am to hear you are no longer with us. i had no idea that you were battling leukemia and wish you had told me so i could try to encourage you. I don't think Michelle knew either. but you have always been quiet not wishing for any attention. we are the same that way. i see your twin is with us and perhaps living in the same home as you. My heart is literally broken as we had become the best of friends due to Michelle. we did exchange many cards to each other when we knew the other one was going through a health issue. of course your pits were the love of your life and i still have the Christmas pictures you sent of them with you. Your smile will be forever lasting in my heart. you are now with God in heaven with you being in a place of rest. God Bless you forever and ever, Love to you, Marguerite Bien

I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with Kathy at BP. She was always very helpful when I had SAP issues.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
