So sorry to hear of Kathy's passing. All my love and prayers for her family. Special condolences for my Uncle Jimmy. I know how it feels to lose a child, be it 10 or 66. I can't comprehend two.

To Anna's family,
For as long as I can remember, Anna was a fixture in Exam from when I transferred there many, many years ago. She was always quick to get a training class rolling at a moments notice, and was a wiz at research who knew the tax code like the back of her hand. She was sorely missed when she retired, and I know you will miss her in this new chapter of life.
With my deepest sympathy,

My memories of Anna, in addition to her unmatched knowledge of the Tax Code and IRS procedures, were her beautiful, long hair and her soft, mischievous eyes, peeking thru her glasses. She was well respected by all who came in contact with her--either when wearing her training hat or while wearing her research hat. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time; I know our God is a Great God and will wrap you all in his comforting arms.

Kathy was such a wonderful part of our Dawson learning community (Sandy's school). Contributing countless hours of devotion to special projects & activities for Sandy's students, and then to ALL of our students through her tremendous work in our Library, she truly made Dawson a better place. Her love for Sandy & her family, and her commitment to making the world better were so obvious!

Kathy had a quiet intelligence, a great sense of humor and she loved her family intensely. When I married her brother James, she welcomed me into the family without hesitation. She would give family and friends a hug with that extra pat on the back that made you feel so loved and accepted. Kathy was so special to us and we will miss her greatly.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you in your sorrow. Anna was indeed a remarkable friend and colleague. We both hold Anna in high regard, having worked with her for many, many years at IRS. Anna was committed to her work and so very proud of her children and family. She was a model for achieving balance - working in a big bureaucracy while maintaining her individuality and caring compassion for others. ~ Phillip & Mitzi Eastman

I had the opportunity to work with Anna while training "New-hires" in the Examination Division of the IRS. I used to kid her about the stacks of training materials on her desk and around her cubicle, but she always knew exactly where to find anything we needed for class. What impressed me most was her sweet spirit, concern for all with whom she worked, and "easy-going" style in spite of deadlines and demands of the job. I am truly sorry for your loss and for ours also.

Anna was one of the smartest and caring person I have met. I enjoyed working with her over the years and greatly missed her after she retired. She told me she was looking forward to helping her daughter in class and in the library.
She was a one in a million and I am very sorry for your loss.
