Not sure what to say?

Im so sorry for your loss. My warmest condolences go out the friends and family of Kathleen. May you find comfort from the encouraging words found at 1 Thessalonians 4:14.

Kathe and I met in 7th grade at Salt Creek Jr High. I have fond memories of our two class field trips, one to Springfield and the other to Detroit, and of many trips made during high school to Al's Smoke Shop so we could get the latest Beatles magazines. As well, we had some fun visits to Chicago where we'd meet her dad for Chinese lunch. I always admired her creativity - still have a couple of her drawings and many of her photos. She was wonderful about keeping in touch, and I still have...

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
