Kathryn had a smile that truly defined her. She was such a warm, compassionate, and loving lady. I trust she's back in the company of her wonderful man.

Rowlie and Sue,  Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.  Both parents lived good,long,lives but it is still hard to see them go.  My mom was 97 1/2 when she passed last Oct. and I surely do miss her.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You know Kathryn was lost without Rowland, she told me at calling hours she didn't know what she'd do without him.  They were both wonderful people and are now together again in heaven.  Prayers for your family
