    I remember Kathy helping my Mom and Dad when they were going through hard times later in life. I still appreciate it to this day.
    When I was 7 years old I called Kathy into the bathroom, the only private place in our house! I asked her to please tell me the truth about the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus, which she did. 🙂

    She will be missed.
