    We are so sad that we cannot be with you at this time. Our hearts are breaking for you. Kathie was the light of many peoples lives. We are comforted with the memories of all our times together. Do not cry because she died, smile because she lived.

    There were ten of us cousins that grew
    up in Topeka Ks. Our families were close
    and we have some great memories.
    Kathie, being younger probably got picked
    on a little!

    Our hearts go out to you. We know you
    were a very close and loving family.

    Rest in peace Kathie
    Love to you John and Pat

    Vince & family,

    I’m sorry for the loss of Kathie. I pray for the strength of the family. When I worked for Vince, Kathie and I would share birthday greetings because we were born on the same day.

    In your quiet time may God give you the inner peace that no one else will understand.

    Love,

    Charlene

    We were so very sad to hear about Kathie. Our prayers go out to all of you for the loss of someone so special and dear. She was so blessed to have such a loving and devoted family and we were all truly fortunate to her in our lives. We know the grief of losing her is painful, but we trust it will soon enough give way to a lifetime of memories of all the joy she brought to everyone’s lives.
    Love,

    We are so terribly sorry for your loss. Kathie, your precious wife and caring mother, was a true fighter. You know more than we do how very much she wanted to get well so that she could be with all of you and little Emma.
    May God comfort your hearts as you mourn for her. Cherish the memories.

    Most Sincerely,
    Gerald and Diane Atkins

    I will never forget the friendship I shared with Kathie. From the first day she brought her two young sons in for a haircut, I knew she was special. She was always so thoughtful even during her illness. She loved her family and especially little Emma Jane. I’m sorry she will grow up without her grandmother to spoil her but I’m glad that God saw Kathie fit to share his kingdom without pain and suffering. And I’m glad he saw me fit enough to share in her life. May your memories carry you all through to brighter days.

    With love,
    Robin
