My sincere condolences to the family for your loss. May the promises in Gods word provide you with comfort and strength during this most difficult time. John 5:28-29

I wish to express my deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone cannot ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he(GOD) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our love ones we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected John 5:28-29. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.

Please accept my sincere condolence. I am so sad to read this today. I have not seen Kathy since her daughter was at the hospital having her first grandchild. Kathy and I were wonderful friends in our early teens. We both lived in the country and I remember spending many days at her home, and her walking me half the way home on the dirt road through the field. Funny how we remember some things; her Mom was very sweet and always played solitaire, and they always had tuna salad in the fridge.
I'm sorry I did not know she was sick. I would loved to have been able to see her. She was such a fun person and I am so sorry for your loss. May peace be with her family.

I'm so sorry for your loss. A beautiful person inside and out. I will miss my friend and sister(as we called each other). We became very close in the last several years. I will miss our girls night out, our rides on back roads and our conversations about everything. We were the best of friends. I will always love and miss her. Heaven better be ready cause my girl likes to talk! Hope there are some good listeners waiting on her and I know her parents were waiting on her to give her lots of hugs and kisses! Our loss has been heavens gain. Fly high Sis. I love you.

My heart goes out to Kathy's family. Kathy certainly earned her a place in Heaven. She suffered for so long but today she is pain free and walking in glory with our Heavenly Father! I will be praying for Billy Ray, Jessica, and Jeff and family. May God grant them peace and comfort in their hearts and the strength to carry on without their sweet Kathy! Fly high my sweet friend. Love you.
