What a wonderful & sweet person - She was the best dog groomer ever (30 years ago) A beautiful soul
Prayers & hugs for the family. Cherish the memories.
Mr. Mike, Mrs. Teresa, and entire family, we were so sorry to hear of your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. God will give you comfort and peace in this time of sorrow. We love yall.
So glad to have known Kathleen. We met through Eastern Star. She was always a joy to be around and helpful with our projects. Other than meetings, there were some one on one visit which I really enjoyed. I had looked forward to more visits. As things changed and gave me time, they changed for her restricting visitors. My sympathy to all the family. May God always comfort you and the sweet memories help you through the rough days.
So sorry to hear of Kathy's loss. A good friend and dear person. Elouise was going to do her hair,but they didn't need her to. Kathy and Elouise go way back. In Shriners together and fixing her hair. She will be missed.
