My heart goes out to you for your loss. My mother, her sister-in-law, always encouraged her to write her stories. I am so glad she did.

She was a wonderful woman, always with that warm hospitable smile. Loved her daughters, son-in law and grandchildren immensely. Can't think of a time I was with her when she didn't have that beautiful warm smile and wonderful spirit. Recently she wrote me a warm uplifting letter. I had composed a response in my head but not yet on paper. I'll miss her.

As my mother's sister, Kathryn has always been a very special person to me. I respect the way she cared for my grandmother, the deep friendship she shared with my mother over the years and the many ways she kept in touch with a growing and widespread family. I loved watching how she loved her family and, in return, the great love they had for her. I will miss her.

Ms. Bush was a kind and gracious lady, always ready to smile and welcoming to family newcomers. With sympathy to all of the Lees and to Mimi from all of the Valentines.
