Growing up with Kathy, she was always the girl in our class that was sure to make you smile and laugh out loud, the life of the party you might say. Whether it was her telling one of her many funny jokes, doing or saying something funny (and usually somewhat mischievous lol!), or just the way she would sometimes look at you with her contagious grin, Kathy had that uplifting spirit that always made you happy to be in her presence. What a special sweet and unforgettable friend! I know those babies and grand babies must've adored her and will miss her so very much, as will all who knew and loved her. Prayers for Rod, their family, Kathy's parents and her brothers, other family members and closest friends. May they all find comfort in beautiful memories of her and in God's promise of a glorious eternal life with no more pain or tears. Love you Kathy! Say hello to Dorothy for me and see you again soon!
