I am so so sorry to hear about Kathy's passing. She was such a special person and a great friend growing up. We spent many hours together riding horses and sharing stories. She was a bridesmaid in my wedding and will always have a special place in my heart. My love and heart felt tears go out to all of her family. I am sure she will be missed by many. Such a lovely person with a great smile always on her face.

Dear Amanda,
We are so very sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was a lovely woman and friend and I am remembering the time she came to my house for your baby shower and you revealed Annabelle's name. It was such a special moment, one that I will never forget and we have it on video if you ever want to watch it. We will be here for you when you need us in Colorado. Love and Hugs,
Katie, Lucette and Erik Lichtsteiner
