I was sorry to hear that Kathy had died. I have many happy memories of her including Kathy, Charisse and I playing together as children, going with Aunt Mick to visit Kathy at Orient State, Kathy and her boyfriend visiting at Christmas. The last time I saw her was at Aunt Mick's funeral.
I am living in Indiana and unfortunately will not be able to make it to her services. It was a blessing to have had her as a cousin. God bless Kathy, may she rest in peace.

So sorry to hear about Kathy's passing. I started working at the Logan County Board of Developmental Disabilities 1985 so I had many years of working with and enjoying Kathy. I had the opportunity to watch her grow and become quite an independent and proud woman. She made our lives richer.
Most Sincerely, Karen
