In loving memory of a wonderful aunt. We will love you and miss you always aunt kathy!

You were more than a Grandmother to me, you were like a second mother to me along with Aunt Toe, you helped me become the woman I am today because I didn’t have a good support system from my own mother. You are the kindest most open hearted woman I’ve ever met and I hope I grow up to be just like that too. You truly are an Angel and I’m so happy that you’re my Nana, is girls are going to work our hardest to make sure this family doesn’t fall apart because you were out glue. We will watch over...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
