Kathy we were not ready to let you go, But God chose to take you home with him & Don. I can only imagine how happy you are now. No problem with trying to breath. You two were the best neighbors anyone could ever have. Never in my thirty four years of living across the street in front of you and talking with you very often did I ever hear you say a bad word about anyone . Always talking so low and kind. You will be highly missed by this family . How beautiful Heaven must be.
