I have many great memories as a cousin of Kathys! I helped her mother clean house when her daughters were grade school age, and I we would fun walks and enjoy goodies together. My husband Harold and I visited them in their Florida home on our way home from Daytona, they were gracious hosts showing us the beach and their town. Praise God for the wonderful memories she left so many of us, brightening our world with her smile! Prayers of comfort and peace for her family.
What a wonderful person inside and out! She will be so missed! God Bless this family during such a difficult time.
Kathy and I were lifetime friends! She was a loving and caring person! So beautiful! God bless her family with peace !
