We are so saddened to hear of Kate's passing. We knew her thru visits to Brethren Home when we brought Communion to her each week until the Virus caused all visiting to stop. She was so friendly and happy to see us. We hugged and felt like part of her family. She will be missed and thought of often. She is at peace now and deserving of Heavens reward. Thank you to her lovely family for sharing her with us . God bless. Ron and Mary Bonfiglio from St. Mary's Church, Greenville💖
