Not sure what to say?

Kay was one of my best friends/cousin. She was also my maid of honor when I married. We had so many wonderful experiences during our lives, many very very funny incidents we experienced no one will ever know about, some totally hysterically funny, others very sad but only personally shared, so very sorry she is gone from my life,I will always hold her in my heart.

RIP old friend,Katherine who always made me laugh with her great personality. My heart is saddened by your passing,but you leave behind sooo many great memories which will be talked about forever. You will be missed but not forgotten. Buddy Venuti
