I remember Kathy fondly. She was a wonderful next door for many years, Dallas too. I loved their dog Cinnamon, and the tiny Dixie cups of Gummy Bears they would give the neighborhood kids. Love and prayers for Dallas at this difficult time.

Kathy taught me a great deal about how to serve. I can still remember coming to the Richardson home to clean when I was younger. Kathy was patient with my efforts and taught me the job she hired me to do. I will always love her for that! To Dallas, I pray for comfort now.

Kathy was a very good friend and neighbor. We were lunch partners. We spent many days laughing and sharing good times over KFC or Tammie's Diner. She was my partner at the family history center in our stake. She had in her file over 100 thousand names. I think she submitted more names to have their work done in the temple than anyone I know. I missed working with her when she got sick. I am sure her reunion with her ancestors was great. I love you Kathy and will miss your loving spirit. I will see you on the other side.
