To the Sloan family, I just learned about this and am very sorry. I was away that week, not reading news media. My father mentioned this over the weekend. Deeply sorry, my heart goes out to your families.

To the McCourt and Sloan Families. With a very heavy heart I send you my deepest sympathies. I was so sad to hear Kathy has passed away. I just saw her and her beautiful family apple picking in the fall and we were talking about getting together. My fondest memories are from college playing hockey together, bus trips, going back for the reunions ...she was a great teammate but even better friend. I will pray for Kathy and for all of you in this most difficult time. My deepest and sincere sympathies Lynn Manning Moynihan

Sean and McCourt/Sloan Family - I am truly saddened to hear of Kathryn's passing. I worked with Kathryn and our children went to Bright Horizons together. Kathryn was a wonderful person and a great mom. I enjoyed many conversations together at drop off/pick up at daycare. God bless you and your family during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers will remain with the McCourt/Sloan Family.
Fondly, Patty Mattos

Sean, it's still so hard to comprehend or to even know what to say. We are just terribly sad for you and the kids. Kathryn was such a great person. We enjoyed knowing her and the girls loved her. Laine bypassed Allison and I to jump in her lap at every chance. That said something about her.

We are here and will do whatever we can whenever we can. Babysitting, dogsitting, food shopping or just someone to hang out and have a beer with. Doesn't matter. When family has left and you need anything, call or text me and we're on it. We love you man and are praying for you, Jack, Claire and Will daily.
