I knew Kathy when she was in high school. We also attended Indiana University together. Her sister Melly was and still is one of my most beloved friends. Kathy and I corresponded a few times in recent years -- partially with minor political discussions and also because I re-connected with an old high school friend which she appreciated! Therefore, both Buddy Bruner and I send our condolences to Melly and to all of Kathy's family we have not known...

While we only knew Kathy for a few years, she was a very important part of our lives and we enjoyed the time we spent with her -- playing bridge, visiting the Ethel M Candy Factory, lunch at the Bellagio, a trip to Mt. Charleston, dinners and more. We will miss her greatly.

Dear Debbie, Laura, Mary Alice and Christian, Mr. Cox and Grandchildren,

I knew Kathryn through Debbie as a long time friend many years ago. I want to express my sincere condolences to all of you on the death of your beloved mom, sister, aunt, grandmother and wife. My memories of Kathryn are very sweet and I am so sorry I didn't know she was ill so I could have at least sent her a card. Having lost both of my parents, I can relate to the pain you all must be feeling and the gap she will have left behind. May the God of peace pour out His peace and loving kindness at this time to ease the pain! With much love,
