I was saddened to hear of Kathy passing. I worked in the same office as her in Sun Lakes, AZ. She was a sweet person. Sympathy to the family.

I am very sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in God's Word. The Bible makes the promise: “Your dead ones will live. . . . They will rise up.” Isaiah 26:19. May this give you hope during this sad times. Your family is in our thoughts.

So sorry for your loss. I remember Kathy as a very vivacious pretty girl in high school. If my memory serves me correctly she was my second cousin. Again my sympathies.
