Kathy was a wonderful, giving person, who was such a help to my dad Frank Anderson who was her neighbor across the street. Kathy and I shared many a phone conversation and I will always be grateful for all of her support and feedback and her constant watching over of my dad. He might not have always listened to her, but he thought the world of her and appreciated all of her concerns for him. I am so very saddened to hear of her passing and will miss not talking with her. I had hoped that she could have been helped again the second time around. Rest in peace Kathy and know that we all appreciated your watchful eyes. My sympathies to your family. I know they will miss you...you were such a special person.
