Aunt Kit was truly one of a kind and one of the kindest people you could ever meet. We always had this thing where whenever I would see or talk to her I would tag her and say, Got You Last. My last visit with her, as I'm walking out of her room I said Got You Last. She says to me I Got You Last Because I See You Last. She got me last! She was a very special lady and it's been a blessing to have her be a part of my family and some great memories. Will miss you greatly Aunt Kit. Much Love, Colleena.

My Aunt Kitty was a beacon of positive light for me all of my life. Our birthday's were a day apart, and when she turned 90, I did some research and found out that both of us were born on Pentecost Sunday, she got so excited like she had just won the Spiritual Lottery. She had so much love in her heart and soul, and practiced her faith so beautifully. What a wonderful role model she was. She took care of my sister and me for 6 months with such grace and understanding
when our brother Michael was ill. Personally, I'll always remember it forever, and feel such gratitude to her for that. And remember Aunt Kitty, nobody can play The St. Louie Blues on the piano like you! It's a classic. All my loving prayers. Mary Patricia Donelson Buckley

My Aunt Kitty knew where she was the day I was born, and had a very special nickname for me my entire life! We spent every Thanksgiving together and shared many fond memories. I will carry her with me always.

Kitty was one of the sweetest people I ever met. She was always so happy and positive. I would see her at Immaculata when I was visiting my mom. Prayers for your family.
