Hello Kathy, its hard to believe that you left us a year ago. You are and will always be in my heart and soul. I love and miss you vey much. Until we meet again I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!
Your sister, Sandy
Hey Aunt Kathy, I know this book is about to close but my love in my heart for you will live forever! This will never be goodbye but I will see your bright shiny smile at the pearly gates when I get there! I wish you a Very merry christmas and a Happy New Year! I love you very much! I did buy you a cross this year as we would normally do for christmas every year prior, this time I just keep it with me. But you already know that. Til we meet again. Love Summer Allen
One day I found you in eternal sleep; I tried to wake you as I began to weep, But all my pleas you could not hear; Oh if I could have only kept you near, Away from the voices of those who went before, Who beckoned you to come to that distant shore. I find it so very hard to believe That you have gone and I must grieve; I call out your name -- you answer not, And I look for you in every familiar spot. Everything seems so strange and surreal, I ask everyday is it a dream or real? Where is the laughter and eyes of affection? Where is the sister who talks of childhood reflection?
Your loving brother
Aunt Kathy.. I thought of you today. as I do alot of days. your smile brightened up any room and you always made me laugh. I am sorry I had to say goodbye at such a young age. You had so much more life to live and life in you to give. I always felt you and I had a special bond, our passing of crosses helped keep that together. I was around you very often growing up and remember many good times with you and Leslie! Your smile will live on in our hearts forever as a reminder not to sweat the small things. A little Poem..: "SET FREE" Now your wings can be set free and you can watch over all of us as we watch you glide through the air with glee.. saying to eachother "there goes the smiling, laughing Mother Mary" In my heart and in our mind you will forever be the lovely aunt Kathy.. Love always the little Summer.. I love you
just thinking of you and miss you!
love your brother
I've known you and your family since I was a young child and have some great memories of hanging out with everyone at the Allen's house, your mom and dad always welcome the Hale boys with open arms in the same way that our Lord and Savior has welcomed you into His arms of love taking away the pain you experienced here on earth while giving you a new glorified body whole with no more pain no more sorrow just dancing in the streets of gold oh how I long for the day. You are truly missed by all who had the privilege to know you by the love you poured out onto everyone you came into contact with.
In Christ alone,

In Memory Of
Mary Katherine Allen
God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around you,
and whispered, "Come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched you,
and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
You loving sister,
Dear Mary Katherine,
I don't have to tell you what a beautiful family you have. You have graced everyone you met with your wisdom and humor. Nobody had the ability to straightened out any situation like you. You have taught so many lessons to everyone.
That's because you are an old soul.
God graced this unique gift to you.
Now everyone has to learn what you taught.
The imprint you had on everyone's soul is felt forever.
I know you will continue to be there for your family ESPECIALLY for your daughters...
With love from The Schuyler Family. Travis, Lisa, and Gracie
I love you with all my heart mom,
even though you may not be close to me in mortality,
your as close to my heart as ever thought possible and more.
no one will ever take away that bond we had and will always have,
in person or not your always with me!
no matter where you are, you'll always be truly my MOM.
for anyone can be a MOTHER,
however, it takes a special person to be a MOM!!
you just so happen to be that special person.
have fun in heaven mommy!!
you most definiatly earned your wings!love you more then anything in this universe in all realms around,
your little girl always and forever,
just as you made me from birth.
I LOVE YOU MOM! R.I.P.

I LOVE YOU MARY CATHERINE ALLEN THE BIGGEST HEART
I EVER KNEW
BY FRANK ALLEN
YOU'R BIG BROTHER
AS YOU WOULD CALL ME
My sister Kathy, where do I begin but to say that she is the "Epitome of Love, Hope and Faith" and by this I mean that through all her suffering and illness she never stopped loving, caring or being concerned about others that she held dear to her heart. She never lost her faith in God, if anything her faith grew stronger, for she knew that God always walked along by her side and never left her.
For all those who knew my sister, know that in spite of all her trials and tribulations that she always had a smile on her face and a kind word to all she came in contact with.
I do believe that my sister was a borrowed Angel sent to us from God and that God missed her so much that he called her back home to walk beside him....I believe she was sent to us to teach us what she already knew, that through all our struggles, God is always with us and never lets us carry our burdens alone.
My sister would often say to me "Sandy how are you so strong and I'm not" but it is she who was truly the strong one. I know Kathy's heart was deeply saddend because she was unable to take care of her two daughters whom she loved so very much, but I know she is up above and will forever more take care and watch over them the way she could not here on Earth.
My heart is filled with deep sadness and yet it is filled with much happiness, for I know that she is exactly where she has dreamed of being for so long...with God and my Mother and Father.
Though my sister may be gone, she will certainly never be forgotten to all who loved her and to all she loved. I know that I will be with my sister again someday because as I write this letter, I know she is begging God to show mercy to all she loved and held so dear to her heart, for I do believe that she not only carried her own burdens but also those of the ones she loved.
We never lose the ones we love for they live on in our hearts forever. Till we meet again you will always be in my thoughts and in my heart. I will always see and feel your presence in all things beautiful created by God.
Love you always,
Your Big Sis, Sandy
Our thoughts and sympathies are with you and your family during this difficult time.
