Many good memories come to mind of Kathryn and the Mathis family. Amanda was one of my sister’s best friends, so I was around them quite often. At ballgames our families sometimes sat together, and we always enjoyed each other’s company. God bless you, George and family.
Casie, Nick, and family, Uncle Dave and I send you our sincerest condolences. We hope you find peace and warmth in your grandmother's beautiful legacy. Precious memories, how they linger. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.Uncle Dave & Aunt Sue
To our dear friends, George, Sherry, Phyllis, Carla and Amanda. Our memories of living next to you all on Nubbin Hill Road years ago are truly "precious". George and Harley pitched horse shoes, Kathryn and I exchanged recipes and visited, the kids rode sleds down the hill into Leslie, flew off into the ditch a few times, laughed and played way into the night on those cold winter nights. That's neighbors loving God and loving each other. Our prayers are with you all in this time of sorry and also joy, knowing Kathryn loved God and she is in His presence.
George, Sherry, Phyllis, Carla and Amanda, We are saddened to hear of your loss. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
