    Kathy was my sisters upstairs neighbor back in 88-89ish. Kathy became really good friends with my sister and the 3 of us had so many good times. She had her hands full with the boys, LOL. She got home from work one day to find Nick was no where to be found. We were looking all over the neighborhood for him. She found him. Lol. He was in the very back if the housing addition hanging out with a BIKER dude watching him work on his Bike. She was so scared, but when she told us where she found him, she couldn't help but laugh, we all did. I loved her laugh, and we shared a lot of it. I have to say, when I heard she had passed, for me it was like, No, not Kathy, anyone but Kathy. she was good and caring, and she loved her family so much. I can see her beautiful face and hear her laughter as if she were here. Mike, Chris and Nick, you boys had the greatest Mother in the world.

    Kathy was such a good person. I done her hair for awhile until I had trouble with my back and had to quit doing hair. She was always sweet and kind.

    Going to miss Kathy ,she was always asking how everyone was, quite as a neighbor But if you needed something she was there. She even was kind enough to help me clean my new house when we moved back ,I was overwhelmed getting everything set up. Thanks for being there for everyone . Rest in Peace My Neighbor.
