Heartfelt thoughts and prayers to each one during your time of loss. My mother, Mary Dee Massie Inman, has shared so many fond memories of Kathryn- her best friend in high school. I had the privilege, of visiting with Kathryn, during one of our trips back to Waynesville. Watching the two of them in conversation- laughing, crying, catching up as though they were still in school, just melted my heart! Mother loved Kathryn so much, loved getting to chat on the phone with her...
We will hold you up in prayer and help you cherish the sweet memory of your loved one.
May God fill you with his peace and comfort-

Mary Dee (Massie) Inman
