To a very dear friend who I meant in 2006; Kathleen you were ( as long as I’ve known you ) to be so FULL of the sunshine that you craved.And you brought that same beauty into the lives of the people you encountered. May you now enjoy the FULL JOY of being in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ throughout eternity! I will always love you….Randy
Such great memories of days gone by when my wife Lori (McCrone) was at Saint Marks High School with Cathy; going to the movies and a trip together to Ocean City, Maryland were highlights. She was such a sweet friend. Even though we moved away shortly after those high school days, the both of us enjoyed our time with her then, both of us will miss her now.
Dear Andy & Family,
My deepest condolences to you and your family in the loss of your dear wife Kathy. Know that I am thinking of all of you during this difficult time, and know you are in my prayers. May the good Lord bless & comfort you & your family. In Sympathy, Peter Mangini
