Condolence & Memory Journal

John Boy. Sincere love and sympathy to you and your family in your great loss

John, Maggie & Jack,
So very sorry to read today of Kathy's passing. Though I didn't know her well, she was always a pleasure to see around town and I always appreciated her conversation and her smile not to mention her kindness at Halloween - always making sure Natalie got a treat she could actually have. I hope happy memories soon replace the grief you must feel. My thoughts are with you.
