Kathy,s family. So sad to read that Kathy has passed away. As a first cousin on her moms side. Very sad for you. Please know I now am thinking of you.
With deepest sympathies to Kathy’s family from childhood friends
Kathy is my first cousin from our Mothers side. She was always a kind soft hearted person. As we grew older our connection was thru Christmas cards. I am so sorry we were not able to get together. I have many fond memories of our childhood when my family would visit Cozad. To her children please hug one another from us. Your long lost cousins from Oregon.
