Even as a small child it was obvious to me that you were a truly kind soul. I love you very much and wish so much that your time on this side of heaven could be longer.

    I begin to reflect the memories of things we did together,
    cooking, raising, talking, sharing.
    I will miss you.

    Thank you for being what you are.

  16. Dear Kathy,

    I so appreciate and admire your faith and the way you have clung to Jesus through such a difficult time. I have never met you, but hearing about you and reading your blog has been a great blessing. I loved the part in the Screwtape Letters when C.S. Lewis talks about a young man who was a Christian who was killed and about how he had left this life behind and had gone into that great light before which the demon could only shudder and hide his eyes. I know that soon you will see Him face to face and I know that there will be great rejoicing in heaven with your arrival there. I look forward to the chance to talk with you there. You have truly fought the good fight…..finished the course….and kept the faith. My thanks to our Father the light that shines through you.

  17. You are a true inspiration to so many in your walk with Jesus. Remember, Kathy, to walk through the cupboard door, into the wonderful realms of Narnia, to be greeted by Aslan. No fear or sadness but eternal love. Save me a place at the lunch table, just where our friendship began at middle school. Love you Kathy.

  18. Kathy~ What an inspiration you have been to all of us! We love you and will miss you fabulous spirit here on earth, but as you say God is good all the time!

  19. Dear My friend Kathy ..

    You are always be in my heart..thank you for your true love and your love for our Lord.

  25. Hello,
    I am Japanese and living in Japan.
    If any one knows about ms. Kathy, Is she really gone..?
    I am worring about her very much.

  26. Dearest Kathy, Our paths crossed for only a short time, but I truly treasured every minute. I am so saddened to learn this news and that the end came so unexpectedly. I know you are no longer in pain or bothered by worldly cares as you are nestled in the bosom of Jesus. My condolences to George and your family.

  29. Dearest Kathy;
    I’m grateful that you introduced me to The Lord, our Christ. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be a believer. And for that, I thank you. As I live life and have troubled times, I think of you and gain strength. I can feel how much our Lord loves and watches over you. That is why you will see him before us. I will live life faithfully, so that I too can join you with Him.
