    Dear Miss Annabeth, while I only got to spend a couple of days getting to know you, your sweet expressions of concern for how my Momma was doing and the giggles we shared over making chicken & rooster sounds will forever be my fond memory of you. Rest well & breathe deep the sweet air of Heaven dear lady!

    I have many fond memories of being in the Kacher home growing up as a friend and classmate of Bridget. Beth was such a sweet and fun lady. Love and prayers to the whole family!

    My Aunt loved life and her family. Her heart was always giving and understanding. What a sense of humor she had! I can hear her laughter in the back of my mind all the time. As a child she was always there for me and as an adult she would always call and check on me. My love and memories are full. I will miss her. She always said to me, no matter what happens remember I love you. I Love you Aunt Beth!
