14 Condolences for Kathleen M. Macey

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Kathy was a beautiful person. I’ve known her since 9th grade at William Penn. She got me my first job at Saveway Pharmacy. We’ve had so many great times through the years. I always admired her for her strength in dealing with her illness. She never gave into it. One Christmas she crocheted afghans for a group of us, even though she was probably not feeling good. I still have that afghan on my sofa, and it will always remind me of my friend Kathy and her great spirit. I will truly miss her and never forget her. RIP Kathy. You are not in any more pain.
