My heart is breaking today, I asked God every morning to watch over Kathy and help her with this struggle. I guess he answered my prayers and took her home to be with Rick. No more pain. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

I was Blessed to call Kathy my friend. I met her while she was a substitute teacher at Fort Hill. She was an excellent teacher and wonderful person. The students loved her and so did I. We shared many of the same values and I enjoyed our conversations. She was someone very special. She will always hold a special place in my heart. She handled her illness with strength and an amazing faith. I will always remember that. To her family,Please know you will be in my thoughts and prayers now and in the days to come as you live life without her. I am a better person for knowing her. Comfort and prayers to all of you .
