Kathy was such a dear, sweet friend in high school and through our college years. I was honored that she was in my wedding. She was such a great letter writer, and I'm so grateful that I hung on to a few of them. They will bring me comfort and good memories.

Oh my Kit Kat, I miss you terribly. You were always such a ray of sunshine in my life. I loved our talks and I miss them so much. I pray you are resting easy. You were a blessing in my life . I will remember you forever.

Such a wonderful woman. I always think of how welcome she made me feel when I moved to Michigan and started working at Whirlpool. Loved our chats - I always walked away uplifted. I’m blessed to have known you, Kathy.

While I didn't have a chance to connect with Kathy for many years, those of us who would regularly "hang out" together back in our SJHS days will always remember Kathy and her sweet smile and fun personality. It's what attracted us to her. I remember fondly how kind Alan and Gloria were to me. She was lucky to have such great parents.
