    We are so sad for you to have lost your beloved Kathleen. We were feeding the deer this morning by hand, the one Kathleen called “Deloris”. We will always remember her every time we feed the deer and the birds, something she loved to do. We would always joke that they would come here for food, being whole oats and then come to Kathleen for dessert, being the corn she fed them. We worried at first when Kathleen would take her nature walks but then soon realized that she was at one with nature and all the animals and was never really in any danger.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    The Gillett family

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Just a short two months ago, while sitting in your kitchen, Kathleen was sharing, what wonderful plans were in store for the next phase of the ‘PeeWee Ponderosa’. But what had her the most excited were your upcoming holidays.
    Good neighbour memories of Kathleen’s kind heart will remain for all of us.
