So very sorry for your loss. I will miss laughing with Kathleen over dinner at my mother’s. We had some very entertaining conversations and she always went out of her way to connect with me. I know she made a lot of people feel special and loved. She is missed but will live forever in the hearts of many. Sending healing energy to all who mourn her passing.

We will always cherish the get togethers we had over the years and the sweet love and laughter she so freely gave to everyone. We are also heartbroken but know she is with the Angels and the Lord after so much suffering. We and our church will keep you all and Aunt Kathy in prayers.

Dear Vince and Family,
I am deeply sorry for your enormous loss. Kathleen was such a warm and wonderful person. I was lucky enough to work closely with her on Virginia Heritage Meet and Greet Committee and when I think back to that time, she is the first person I think of and I cherish the time I had with her, as well as, the fun memories. She will truly be missed.
I hope in the days ahead that you and your family will find comfort and peace in God's love and know that this is not good-bye. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Vincent and family,
“She’s in the sun, the wind, the rain, she’s in the air you breathe with every breath you take. She sings a song of hope and cheer, there’s no more pain, no more fear. You will see her in the clouds above, hear her whisper words of love......” by C.A. Martine
