FOR MY "MOON"

The dearest gifts that heaven holds,the very finest too!
Were made into a pattern that wasperfect,sweet,and true!
The angels smiled well pleased and said!
Compaired to all the others!,this mold is just so wonderful!
"It was the one that held my Mother"
For she was made of deep devotion,of sacrafice and pain!
Her love was limitless,and unselfish,Enduring come what may!

And nothing could destroy that love ,nor take that lovve away!
She was patient and forgiving,even when her heart was breaking!
She believed and taught us too!
About the Lord and his creation!

And there was a bit of God,and pure love!
In our Mother he has taken!

I will love you forever Dear Mother,
"Sun" Stephen

Words cannot express the saddness that Dave and I are both feeling. You were the most loving and sweet person that I have ever known. We both know that you are with God now. We will miss you greatly. Love you always

My dear cousin Kathy was a welcoming and caring person, full of love and laughter. We've all been blessed by knowing her. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

Lee and I want to express our sympathy for the loss of my special cousin, Kathy.

I learned so much from her. Kathy was my mentor, and taught me how to take care of the babies in my younger years. We spent so much time together, and I appreciate all the time that the four of us had.

I use to babysit all you children. Each one of you have special meaning to me. Michelle, (my God child), I appreciate that you call me (weekly) to check on my health.

I will miss Kathy very much. I appreciate the love and respect Kathy and you, Glenn, had and am glad to have spent so much time together in our younger years.

If only time did not pass so quickly.

We love you all,
Lee and Connie Rambler

To all my wonderful, loving, caring, spiritual, devoted and cherished cousins: I am deeply sorry for the loss of Kathy. I have always been so grateful for Kathy's love, compassion, gentle encouragement, unselfish desire to help me (during my health problems), and inspiration. I have never known a woman with so much love, courage, strength and bravery. She gave, gave, and gave of herself, unconditionally. I am so mystified by her gracious love for others, while she battled a horrible war inside her own body. Her faith inspires me. Her love for family enlightens me, and the pure & loyal devotion to you, Glenn has always allowed me to "believe" that LOVE does and can exist. You and Kathy had the most precious marriage--one that few are able to have! One I long for. One I dream of.

Kathy, I will miss your cards of encouragement. I will miss your gorgeous smile. I will miss hearing the joyful news from Michelle of the courageous battles you won. You are so special. I loved hearing the stories my "NAN" would tell. Oh, how she loves you. Can you hug and kiss her, pop, and the others for me? (I know U already have!) I love you.

I love all of you. I am here if anyone needs me!

I have great respect for the way your family pulls together during a crisis; unites, connects, bonds, and tightens the knot.

Glenn and Family,

May God give you strength to get through this tough time. Just know that Kathy is with Him and is not sick anymore. She's dancing with the angels and singing to the Lord.
Keep the memories of her in your heart. She was the most kindest, nicest, unselfish person I ever met. I'm glad to have known her.
God Bless you all.
