Not sure what to say?

I’m so sorry to hear about Kathy!!! She was such a bright light and generous, kind soul. My sympathies to you all!

Kathy taught both my children in bible school at Camp Hill Presbyterian Church. She was a regular and lovely addition to our church services. What a fine and loving person she was. She will be missed by so many. My heartfelt condolences to her family.

I'm so sorry to hear of this news. Mrs. Kuhn (as I knew her) was a consistent presence in my childhood, both as my Sunday School teacher and as the mother of my dear friend, Mary. She was a loving, generous, good person. My heart goes out to Mary, Tom, and General Kuhn. Peace and blessings to you all.

My heart is with your family. May you celebrate her beautiful life and remember all the joy she shared with us. May God grant you healing in the memories and love of your friends and family. Rest in the arms of the angels, Mrs. Kuhn.

Our deepest sympathy to you Tom and the entire family. Kathy was a wonderful lady. We enjoyed out Masonic bus trips to the reunions. Kathy always gave more of herself to other people. Even though to only got to know you and Kathy since the move to masonic Village. She will be missed by all the people she touched here at the Village. May God be with you and give you strength. Ken and Mary Lou Harms
