Kathy was one of those truely great women of this world. Alway happy, active, cheerful and alway very welcoming. Her chosen profession was right down her alley and I am certain she excelled as a caregiver, while providing compassion to those in her care. We haven’t been close since high school , however seeing her “in memory” brought a smile and a tear to my heart as an angel has left our midst. Til we meet again. 

With warm regards,
