Pam,Julie and TJ.
Words can not express my sorrow over your Mom's passing! She was one of the best human beings I have ever met. She was a joy to work with! She made coming to work each day fun and an adventure. She was always smiling and laughing,hard to have a bad day around Kathy. I was friends with her on Facebook,but haven't been on in a month,so I missed the sad news. She was special and one of a kind! When I think of her,I always smile!

I am so sorry to hear of Kathy's passing away ! I am her next door neighbor on Magician Lake , she was a very sweet lady and always smiling . She just told me she returned from four months in Cali and was just bubbling about it . I am so very sad for you all . If I can help in anyway please contact me thru email .

I am so sorry to hear of Kathy's passing. My family and I have years of great memories of Kathy and the entire Trenda family. I will miss her.

Prayers of comfort & healing to the family, Kathy will be missed by all of her friends here in Michigan.

To Kathy's grieving children, grandchildren and sisters...
I am so sorry for this heartache. I will always treasure the fun we shared over these many years. I feel blessed to have been a friend who was involved in "the Boyle's" and their hilarious antics (most of which Miss Kathy played a major part in). I will miss her huge smile and "nasally laughter"!

Pam and Brian,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. May God Bless you and comfort you and know that she is reunited in Heaven with your Dad. Another Angel resides in Heaven watching over you and your family

We will miss your Mom so much and all the wonderful times we have had together. Will always remember her voice and laughter. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Our deepest sympathy to the Trenda and Boyle Families, our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We had some very memorable times especially on Magician Lake when we lived there, Kathy (KAKA) as she was fondly know was so much fun and we surely will miss her. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor.
