I remember Kathy from Sacred Heart School in the 60s. She was a friend back in childhood school days and I have many fun memories of her and those days. R.I.P. my childhood friend :(

Kathie was an amazing woman to work with. We were the 2 Kathies. I enjoyed our many discussions about Buffy & our shared tuna subs from Cousin Mikes. I have so many sets of earring she made for me. My heart goes out to Lyn, Jen & Sami. I know she will be missed dearly.

I am so glad that my friendship with Mom was growing. I will never forget the laughs we shared and that she always waited for me to change the calendar! I will miss our time together and how we would always try to trick Lyn or prank her!!
Love you.
