So sorry to hear about Kathy.  We were not able to make calling hours and I felt bad about that.  I remember when she got her trumpet.  I would hear her practicing her heart out.  She became very good on her trumpet.  She will be missed.  Our deepest condolences to your family.                               Virg and Jani

I am so sorry to hear about Cathy.  I remember her when we were growing up and as teenagers, we would go to the drive-in together.  I went to the showing and remember some of the pictures when she was in school.  They brought tears to my eyes.
