Dear Family,
Please accept my sympathy on the passing of Kitty. It was my pleasure to work with her at the Campbell Place. She always enjoyed listening to piano music provided by various volunteers. She especially enjoyed hearing Jim play as he always made her smile and feel good.
God Bless you and your dear family.

Dear Ivo, Cathy, & Jo,
I sit here with tears in my eyes as I recall such wonderful memories of family gatherings at Grandma Lehmann's and the times that all of us cousins were together. Kitty has traveled a sad journey in these last years of her life with all of you by her side helping her in her struggles to have quality of life. She is now again with Ivo, Jr., Uncle Bernard, Aunt Catherine, and all of those loved ones she knew so well. We send our heartfelt love to all of you as you endure the days and weeks ahead as your memories flood back to mind of the wonderful times when life was so much better for her. Thinking of all of you today and in the weeks to come. Love to all. Audrey & Dave
