Beckie and Barb, (Kirk & Jeff)
I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I have so many fond memories of spending the night at your house during our years of growing up together. Your mom was always busy, but took time to open up her home to your friends. I know she will be missed by you and all her many grandchildren! You are in my thoughts and prayers.  Kathy Sauder

To the Family of Kathryn Miller,

Please know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers in the loss of a very special Aunt and your Mother.  Believe me, I am very sad and so disappointed that we will be unable to be with the family for the funeral this Saturday.   We will be in Florida where I will be taking a Flower Design Seminar, but I will always treasurer the visit that we have had on recent visits to Ohio with her.  She will be missed by all of us.   Love, Joe and Sharon Yantis

So sorry for your loss.  I will always think of Kathryn as my fifth grade teacher that let me tell the class that my Mom had a baby girl.  This would be Jennifer in 1961.  I always thought the world of Kathryn then, and thru the years.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Sincerely,
Barbara Kemp

Sorry to hear of Katherine's passing.  She certainly was a great lady.  She always let us get away with a lot more than Ted ever did.  I know she will leave a large empty space in all of your hearts.

Sorry to hear of the death of my long-time friend.  I often think of her and the good times we had growing up together--going to school, riding the same school bus for 12 years along with Ruth Ransome Simmons, Eleanor Snowden Davis Holt, riding Nellie, my pony, learning to ride Kathryn's bycicle, and visiting when I returned to Ohio to see my relatives after we married.
