I am sorry for your loss. I really loved your mom. She was a beautiful lady. I can still hear her calling her boys "dumb bunnies" when they did something wrong. I remember her strong will and love of God. She will hold a special place in my heart forever. May peace be with your family.

When my mother, Helen Oshinsky, moved in with us next door to the Bradshaw's from Florida, she really enjoyed going over to visit Kate quite often as they seems to share a lot of common interests being nearly the same age especially talking about their love for their grandchildren. My mother was often called "The Preacher Lady" as she loved to share her love for God with everyone she met. She told my wife, Rita and I that she prayed with Kate often and was glad that Kate excepted salvation and positive that both of them would meet again and dwell together forever in Heaven in the presence of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

I've always enjoyed talking to Mrs. Bradshaw. It was one of my fourth of July high points. Hundreds of people around Pin Oak Point and I'm downstairs talking away with Mrs. Bradshaw. Peace.

My heartfelt condolences are with the entire Bradshaw family at this sad time. Aunt Katie and my Mom were close, and I always loved seeing her. Katie was always so warm and kind to me. When I think of Aunt Katie, I remember her and my mom together laughing. May God bless her.
