Kathy was an amazing person that we had the rare privilege of knowing. She was adventurous, compassionate and loving. She had a wonderful way with animals and a great sense of humor. She was a hard worker, a good neighbor and a close friend. She fought the good fight, and in every way that counts she overcame. She will be missed. Jun 07, 2013
