Intelligent, articulate, graceful, generous, joyous, funny, fearless, kind, creative, loving, gracious, courageous, tenacious, forgiving, faithful. So many lovely words to describe her. So many memories to sustain us, she continues to hold our hands and hearts even after death. Kathy - Ma - Mommo - Gramma - Gragra and Kakaleen - KFPH - a "True Hogan." She was a skilled nurse, an honest and treasured friend, an eager and excited traveler, a rock - and sometimes a hard place, who loved music and dancing and a cold beer and living every day - quiet time when it was needed and her family always. She was our champion and cheerleader, with a huge heart, an unbounding and pure spirit, and unquestioning faith in God, and a lifetime teacher of the colossal power of love and forgiveness. We love you always, sweetest one. Good morning, world! Good morning, sweet kakaleen.
