To Kathy's family- I am so sorry and shocked to hear that Kathy is gone from you so soon. Our Upper Darby friends had been trying to coordinate a get together about 5/6 years ago and figured we'd get around to it. Kathy loved her family so much. I remember visiting in Upper Darby to see her precious baby just a few weeks old. Her husband Dave was working and we missed seeing him but the happiness with her family was so obvious.  Love, Jeanne, Barb, Joan and Mary

This comes as such a shock! We are so very sorry for all of your loss!! I was lucky to connect with a Kathy in Florida prior to Rays passing!! She fell off the chair in his room and we all bursted into laughter! My last memory of her! God Bless you all!

So sorry to hear of Kathy's passing.  We were friends back on Greenwood Avenue many years ago.  I've had memories that pop up instantly whenever I heard her name mentioned over the years.

Like the time in Wildwood, after a 4 hour happy hour on my birthday when Kathy offered to take me to get something to eat.  It was only after we finished eating, did she realize that she had no money on her.  We waited for an opportunity and bolted out the door, running and laughing all the way home!  

That girl could belt out a mean "My Man" to rival Streisand, as well.  Hope she's singing in Heaven!

We only met a few times but what a great soul . We take comfort in Rom 10:9
If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 
The Lord is close to the broken hearted .
