I worked with Kathy at Novartis and from the moment I met her I loved her. She was always smiling and had infectious laugh that will be in my heart forever. I followed her on Facebook for years and she was always celebrating her family. To Ed, Lynn and your Family and loved ones, my deepest sympathies for your loss. I hope you will find comfort in each other and the devotion and love you gave her in her lifetime.

Kathy and I were first cousins. As children their visits to Virginia and ours to New Jersey were very special. I am very sad to learn of her death and will miss her. Know that I am praying for all of you.

I didn't know Kathy personally but over the years I've seen the love that was shared between her and her family through Dawn and Scott.

Hugz and prayers to all of those who are impacted by this loss
