Auntie Kath (and Uncle Frank) were the kindest and most generous of people. I will always remember Kath's kindly humour and her positive attitude to life. I suppose we met a dozen times, separated as we are by the big pond. But from when I was 5 to when I was 50 I don't think she changed at all. We will really miss her and will be thinking of her and all the family today. With our sincerest condolences,
