Boy am I going to miss you, it is crazy how used to seeing someones posts you get until they pop up no more. Our bus rides to and from TCF will never be forgotten we were able to get to know each other so well in those hours of transport. You were such a good person, and I am so sorry to hear that your light has been dimmed. I will continue to pray for Gary and Ariel to get through this test of time. You are loved and will be missed.

I don't think it has yet set in that you are gone. I still look for posts from you on fb and I still look down every aisle at Cub for you. You will always be in my heart and I am continuously thinking about Gary, Ariel and everyone else this has effected. I'm sorry I didn't make it to the services but know I was there in spirit. Please save a spot for me up in heaven. I love and miss you lots! Love, You one and only Kimmy Coco Puffs =)

A beautiful woman. May your beauty and strength live on through your husband and daughter. You are missed probably more than you ever expected by more people around the world than anyone could imagine. You touched so many of us in different ways. Rest in peace, dear Kathy. I am sorry I couldn't make it out in person today to say good bye for now...until we meet again.

After 14 years of talking online I find it hard to believe you're gone. I won't have you around to share pictures of Ariel or remind me on yearly basis about how long we've been talking to each other without meeting. I'm going to miss your grammar nazi antics, fierce wit, and humor. You never judged me even when we didn't agree, which was the best part about having you as a friend. Rest in peace, my friend, I'm going to miss you very much. My sincerest condolences to Gary and little Ariel. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I still can't believe you're gone. My mind looks for you everyday. I know your funeral is today, and I know it's real, yet I can't make the connection. I met you online, and never in person but you were still one of my closest friends. I will miss everything about you. You had this wicked ability to be able to piss me off with your words, but I loved you anyway. And I knew that no matter what my opinon might be, you loved me too. Save me a seat friend, because you're someone I want to see when it's my time as well. My condolences to Gary and little Ariel, you will continue to be in my prayers at this very difficult time in your life. Gary, if you need anything, don't hestitate to contact me. I know we've never met either but I know how important you were to Kathy and that's good enough for me.

To a wonderful wife, mother, friend and guild were taken way too soon and will be deeply missed. Although I never met you in person we shared many laughs, rants, and raids together that I will never forget. Azeroth is not, and never will be, the same without you. We love and miss you.

Always the person I could depend on for a witty retort or a funny way of looking at a situation, and the person I knew would have great advice if I needed it. I will miss you terribly my friend. You made a lasting impression on my view of this world that I will never forget. Thoughts and prayers to your husband and beautiful daughter during this time. Rest in Peace and love.
