Kathy was my favorite mom of all my friends. How she ever kept her cool with mine and Lara’s adventures in HS. She was the sweetest and kindest person anyone could ever know and will be missed by many. I’m truly saddened to hear the news. She is now watching over her beautiful family. Much love and hugs to you all.

She couldn’t wait to come to Aruba her happy island. Surrounded by her family she was glowing when they arrived so happy and smiling, laughing and joking around. That’s how I will always remember my mother. Such a beautiful person inside and out. I love u momma
