It was my good fortune to enjoy Kathy’s friendship for many years. Her loyalty, big heart, and sense of humor were unmatched. She was a voice of reason in challenging times and I’ll never forget the many times she made me laugh ‘til I cried. Tears of sadness now because the world has lost an extraordinary person. Rest in peace, Kathy.
