    Honored to remember Kathy as a cousin.

    Humbled to know she considered me a friend.

    Will never forget the recent reminder we shared that the annoyance’s of life do tend to bring laughter and memories.

    Aunt Estelle, Claude, Jon and David you are in my thoughts. Unable to be there in person for the funeral, but thoughts and prayers will be with all who join together to remember Kathy.

    I’ll Think of You
    When the Days Turn Cold,
    And the Leaves of Summer Turn Red

    I’ll Remember You
    As I Grow Old,
    And My Days, Like the Summers, Have Fled.

    Thank you, Kathy, for being my friend.
