To our dear cousins and all those mourning this loss, we extend our sincerest and most heartfelt condolences. Kathy was always a welcoming, loving, and caring spirit. Whenever we were in her presence she made us feel so loved! And so well fed! I'll never forget the spread she put on one New Years' Day! Kathy was a wonderful, fun soul and Heaven just became an infinitely more happy place! We send our love to all of you.
