Dear Frank and family,
We are sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved Mother. She was a wonderful influence on your educational and career choices and was undoubtedly
very proud of you. We know your good memories of her love and devotion will
sustain you now and in the future. Sincerely, The Bates Family

My brave cousin Kathy was so sick in April, yet she somehow found the energy to meet me at White Chapel cemetery in Troy, Michigan, to lay her Aunt Betty (my mother) to rest. In May she found out she would be a grandmother of twins, and she wrote me the big news, saying she was determined to work hard in rehab to build up her strength for the big event.
Kathy was like that all her life, rising above personal tragedy many times, always thinking of the right thing to do for someone else. I loved our family Thanksgivings together as kids, our summers at our grandparents' cottage on the lake near Chelsea, and our year of frequent lunches together when I lived near Ann Arbor. She was so bright and interesting to talk to about anything. What an intellect! What a sports fan! (We had a 50 year Spartan-Wolverine rivalry, but she knew way more about sports than me.) She was endlessly patient, unflappable really, and so supportive.
Our extended family was tiny, so she seated me at the head table for her daughters' weddings, an honor for me. She and Frank raised four remarkable children, and it's been my pleasure to know them all as adults. Their character and accomplishments truly reflect the best of Kathy and Frank. My heart goes out to them during this sad time for all of us.

I will always remember Kathy's generosity, kindness, and devotion to her family. I had the privilege of meeting her in 2004 and becoming close friends with her daughter Krissy. I am forever indebted to her and Frank for bringing into this world someone I hold so dear to my heart. I know Kathy fought fiercely and courageously, and I feel so incredibly honored to have known her. How lucky heaven is now...
