Kathi, You have no idea how much it meant to me to be able to spend a small part of Friday afternoon with you.  As we have all had to grow up and be become the women that our mothers would be proud of, it is amazing how the loss of mama can turn us back into little girls again.  Although we go that full circle, we all realize that we have been so blessed to have a mother that is not just the one that gave us life but a mother who was so special and became our best friend.  Kathi, you and your mom shared such a wonderful life together and it was obvious how special she was because all of us fell in love with her immediately.  My thoughts and prayers have been with you and your family.  It was amazing to see the lessons that your mom taught each of you in the weeks before she was raised to Glory.  She taught you patience, perserverance, and how to stay just long enough to make sure that each of you were alright.
With much love!

To the family, She will be missed so much. We thought the world of her. I was glad to have spent some time with all of you. There wasn't a better person than what she was. She would have given you any thing, even her last bite of food. That's how wonderful she was. She will be missed for a long time to come.
