Kitty will always be in my heart as well as her husband Jr. These two people brought great joy to my life as well as the whole Benoit family. I will always cherish the wonderful times we spent in Vinton with our cousins. Kitty was my mom’s best friend and she and Jr. spent many fun times playing Wahoo with myMom and Dad. I will always cherish the memories of time spent with Kitty and Jr. God blessed us with two beautiful people. They will be missed.
