Kat was a dear sweet lady to me and my family ,every time I seen her she always had something nice to say. I was truly sorry to hear that she had been sick . It has been some time since I seen her but I still have good memories of her and her family. I would like to say to her family Johnny and Nancy , Author and all her grandchildren and great grandchildren and great ,great grandchildren. My heart goes out to you all for the passing of your love one. It was time for Kathleen to graduate from this old body and be with the good Lord Jesus Christ and that should give you all the peace in your hearts to carry on. Gods word says to be absent from the body Is to be present with the Lord. She now has know more pains and worries . My prayers are for the whole family and those that don't know Jesus Christ as their personal savior, you only have to ask and accept Jesus Christ has your personal savior, ask him to come into your heart and to forgive you of all your sins and trust in him ,that had know sin but gave his life through" His Blood " for the world that who so ever believe in "JESUS CHRIST" the ONE and ONLY " GOD MAN "that died and "ROSE AGAIN "so that we all could have eternal live through him. "GOD BLESS " you all in "JESUS CHRIST our LORD and SAVIOR." Your friend Steve Nix and family.
