Hi Kathy and family,
I am still out of AZ so will not be able to attend but know I will be by you in spirit giving you a hug. Miles could not have had a better family to love and support him as he was going through so many difficult times. And Kathy, what a great wife! You always kept a happy spirit for him and I know you were stressed but you just kept going. Yet you and your kids were able to maintain normal lives and that was good for Miles too. It’s been fun seeing you at the luncheons as you were taking care of you too.
Know that I along with all your many friends will be here to support you and help you to keep that smile on your face.
You are loved!
Love you Mawby from TN
PS: I can still hear Miles’ voice calling for you at work and I would keep him laughing till you got to the phone. ❤️
