Aunt Kathy,
I haven't came to terms in this passing yet... You and I haven't spoke much in the last couple years and felt alot of it had to do w me. I will never be able to tell you to your face the things i wanted too say but I know in my heart you see ALL the truth now. I didn't see this one coming and yes how will this family recover from this lost. I have so many memories with you I can't point just one... Fields trips, America teach ins, crocheting, coloring books, nerf guns! Water guns! Rapping toys! Baking, laundry runs!, watching movies! We all loved DC and Marvel!! I wish i would spend the lost time with you. Until we meet again.. RIP Aunt Kathy

To my big sister ,Kathleen Hildreth , Howie & I were heart-broken by the news of your sudden passing from this Earth. We will truly Miss you and your smiling face. Sorry that we will not be able to get down for your celebration of Life , but at this time Howie is recovering from heart surgery ,again. Thank you for my gift of the Beach bear that you made, she is so cute.
I have always looked up to you for guidance and support all of my life. Some may not know that Mike and you have know each other since 4th and 5th grade. And Dad made you split up in High school and see other people, He said that if it is meant for the two of you to be together then you will come back to each other. I know that Mike was so scared the day he had to ask Dad for your hand in marriage. When he got the ok from Dad ,I gave Mike a big hug. Some of us know Mike as Rick. He went as Rick because our little sister Melinda married a man named Mike ,so that way there was no problem when we were talking about each of them.
Also, I was so honored that you were my witness at Howie & my wedding day in Albany, GA and it was on your birthday April 10th, 1975 . Will Love you forever!
I know that you will live on as you were an organ donor. The lives that you will help and save is priceless. And to my brother-in-law ,Rick (Mike) my heart is breaking for you. Howie & I are sending our Love to you , Stay Strong, you will get thru this and I know Kathy's Love will be there to help you thru it.
