    To Kathy’s family…I found out yesterday of her death. I was so sad. We had lost touch, although I tried several times to contact her. She was such an important friend to me in high school. I cannot imagine what you are going through. Please know that I will never forget her. Pam

    I am so saddened by Kathy’s passing. I met her about 4 years ago. We became friends. She was one of the most intelligent people I have ever known. She just wanted people to listen to her. She helped me through some really rough times and was a great listener and gave really good advice. The last time we talked she did not have the energy for a conversation but we told each other we were dear friends and loved each other. I am so thankful that those words were said. At least she knew she had a dear friend who loved and accepted her. To her family I am sorry for your loss, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Kathy and I often prayed together and would want her family to strive to follow God as she did. I was blessed to have known her .
