I understand the grief and loss you are going through. I pray God will hold you very close, and as He has promised to supply all your needs in Christ Jesus.
Kathleen was a precious lady and an awesome English teacher and Senior class sponsor in1976. She was so talented! She played the piano at my wedding 41 years ago and had a bridal shower for me at her house in 1980. Such a gracious hostess! I loved seeing all the pictures in the video. So many precious memories! Praying for peace and comfort that only God can give for Dave and his sweet family!🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
I am sadden with the news of your loss of Kathleen. I went to school with her and would always enjoy our class reunions and all the the times we would see each other at ballgames thru out the years! She was always so caring ! We can rejoice that she is no longer in pain , and I will see you in our heavenly home someday!

Kathleen was a special lady. Prayers for this great loss and comfort for the days to come.
We were shocked and sorry to read Kathleen’s obituary. There is a lot of love in that family. We know you will miss her, but will also be happy to know she is in her her heavenly home. George and Sandra Odom
I worked with Kathleen for 10 years at Nemo Vista. Our rooms were back-to-back. She was a graceful, lovely, and classy lady. She was a mother figure to me my first 10 years in education. I treasure those years with her. I didn't know she was ill. I am so sorry that she has left us, and I know that she is with Jesus. I wanted to let you know that she spoke often and fondly of her kids and family. I am a better person to have known her. May she rest in love.
She is already missed. My thought and prayers to Dave, Misti, and Damen.
Dave and family so sorry for your loss. Prayers for all.
