I met Kathy while attending Vo-Tech, she was always kind and kind of quiet, very nice lady. It's never easy losing a loved one, the one person who has been in your life always. Hopefully we have fond memories that will help us remember the loving times. May peace be with you and your loved ones. RIP Kathy

Kathy and I met at Taco Grande. We went to Orlando following our senior year. I had just recently reconnected with her on Facebook. Prayers for the family. Her sister, Tammy. Her sons. May you be comforted by the presence of the Holy Spirit. May you gain strength from God, the Father, and may you have hope through the sacrifice of Jesus our Lord & Savior.
