I loved Kathy with all my heart, I just found out late friday night, I had left messages with my cousins to please let me know if they heard anything about her, they were too busy to make a 3 minute call, she meant more to me than words can describe. I spoke with Kathy often, the last time was about a week ago, she was her cheerful self, I knew it was bad, I asked her if she was dying, she told me no sis I am gonna be fine, I was going to fly up to see her, but she had just gotten home from the hospital. I called Bryan and he told me she was gonna be fine, she was so proud of Bryan and Kristen and all of her grandchildren. She loved all of her brothers & sisters & cousins, nieces & nephews; I knew this through talks I had with her. She seemed to always know when I needed to talk to someone, especially a relative. I remember the last time I saw her, was Thanksgiving at my Moms 4 or 5 years ago. Me, her and my mom laughed so hard! I knew she loved me like a sister, and I will miss her so much, and will look forward to seeing her in Heaven. Love, Sissi

What can I say about my friend Kathy..sometimes you meet a friend along the way that just gets you..that was hershe just always understood me. We could go for years & not speak & boy as soon as we did it was like no time had ever past. We had a lot of fun together. You are the first friend I ever had to say goodbye to & that day really changed me. I made you a promise & kept it so I pray you rest in peace my dear friend & I will see you on the other side! Once again thanks for the memories!
