I'm so sorry to hear of Kathy's sudden sickness and death! Kathy and I were best friends in grade school. I grew up just over the hill from her. We met again years later in life working at the same place, Crawford Memorial Hospital! I know Kathy hadn't been retired long and was so looking forward to it. I'm so sorry her life was cut short so soon!
