It has been a pleasure to have Kathy in our lives, though separated by thousands of miles it was like we took right up from where we left off when we were reunited. She was a beautiful person on the outside and even more beautiful on the inside. We will always remember our last reunion and the time we spent together sharing life’s stories.

I knew Kathy for many years in her professional roles and was blessed to visit with her at several events this summer, but I truly regret not knowing her more on a personal level. She leaves a huge gap in that big, beautiful and loving family and my heart is truly hurting for you all. Looking at the video gave me insight into the depth of her love for all of you. I will remember you in my prayers and carry you in my heart during this difficult time.
