Kathryn was such a kind, loving, and thoughtful lady. She had the most beautiful blue eyes that sparkled with her youthful spirit. Her deep love and devotion for her family was matched only by their love and devotion for her. It was an honor and privilege to know her! You have my deepest, heartfelt sympathy! With love & prayers,

We are so sorry for the loss of Kate, your mother and grandmother. Her smile and gentleness come to mind from our meeting years ago, and I know her spirit will live on in you. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you during this difficult time.

Mary, I remember being at your parents house back in the late 1960's. Your Dad and Mom were very nice and hospitable; your Dad sitting in "his" chair and Mom with her apron on. Knowing them and you all these years has been a cherished thought. I know the last few years has been a challenge for your Mom and the family, but I will never forget the "porch" parties, the singing and laughing and your Dad or Mom telling us to "quiet down".
God Bless them and know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
