Kathy, I have loved you for a long time. Leo and I will love and miss you forever. You always made me laugh and I loved your personality (positive and sweet) at the same time. So glad we were family and friends, you are gone too soon.

I was so excited when I found a home right across the street from Kathy and Jim! In my short time on Francis Ct they have been the best neighbors! I've know Kathy for over 25 years and I always loved her sassy, honest ways! (sound like someone else we all know) I will miss our little impromptu meetings and visits! Kathy I promise to keep an eye on Jimbo for you !
