    Kathy will always be one of my best friends. I love her dearly and was so horribly sad to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, who I know are grieving her loss. I would like to thank her children and parents for being there for her while she was so ill. I know she appreciated their love, dedication, and care. I am going to miss her something fierce, but believe we will meet again one day.
    Love you buddy, may you rest in peace.

    Kathy’s time on earth was far too short for us, who she left behind. Some people need one hundred years to leave their mark on earth while you, Kathy, needed only 52. Most people could never accomplish what you did in your short time. I am proud to have known you and to have witnessed your many accomplishments:two being your intelligent, beautiful and amazing daughters.
    Your smile will be remembered, never missed. Your friendship treasured. I thank you for our laughs, jokes, mischiefs and intellectual communiqués!
    I know that you will rest in peace my dear friend.
