It's so hard to NOT pick up the phone   and call.  I will miss my call from , " Hi MOM it's just me."  I would give all my remaining years to hear her say Hi MOM.  I would want it to have been me a thousand times in stead of her.

Kathi, I'm sorry I never got to meet you, but know something about your Mom and sister. Your Mom and I have been friends for many years and during those years she spoke highly of you and your sister. I know she loves you both very much.
My thoughts and prayers are for you and your loved ones

Hi Sissy, I haven't been able to rest since you've been gone. There's been so much to tell you, like our gossiping, laughing telling me what you need. I miss you calling me 5 times a day to remind me, because you completely new I would forget. You gave the best hugs,advice unconditional love. I miss you so much. Have fun with Grandma and everyone. No more pain. Walking with Jesus now. 143

To my sweet friend Diana.  I don't know what or how to say how much you'll be missed.  I prayed for you everyday and thanked Jesus for our friendship.  You always made the prettiest Christmas cards and I will always cherish them.  Our long phone chats, playing games on pogo and helping each other  with badges are a few things I'll miss.  Your irreplaceable.

To my best friend Kathy.  I miss not talking with you on the phone.  We shared so many memories.  I remember when we first met.  We always shared each other's thoughts.  You were such a blessing in my life.  You are no more in pain, God has set you free.  I know that one day soon, we will be together in heaven.  Love you forever, Patty.

I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck????. Since I can remember, you would always sing me that song. Nonnie made it extra special when she added... I love you cuz your eyes are blue a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck. What I would give to hear you sing to me auntie. I know as I got older our visits together were not that often. I was always "to busy"

Heart felt condolences to Kathi's friends and family!  She was an endearing, considerate, generous, creative and caring woman.   I am grateful I got to know her and appreciate the time we got to spend together at Willow Glen Center. May she rest in peace!

We had our many many ups and downs, I have been struggling to find the right words to say, when last night I saw the beautiful full moon and I imaging you up there in Heaven Howling at the moon (inside joke from when I was like 5)... And I know you must love it running around and doing what you love, you have probably tracked down all of the lost Soap stars to talk and talk and talk!!!

i met you in my first year of highschool at Andrew Hill High. I was an awkward, shy student and you embraced me with love, comfort, and ease. we became very good friends and we went everywhere together at your coupon job, and to movies, in which you and Nan snuck me in! you were always there for me, helped me through a financial crisis for which I am forever grateful. special angel!

Aunty... It's so hard to believe that this where we come to talk now. I know I shouldn't be sad anymore, but the  tears just keep falling and they don't seem to stop. David Jr gets school pictures soon, I'll be sure to post yours for you. I miss all our conversations and reading your comments on my FB page. I often read all your old posts, just to hear you one more time. Loving U 4ever

Morning auntie??.i miss YOU like crazy. Every morning as i drink my coffee i sit outside n watch the sunrise.??. Most days its just a normal sunrise. Nothing to special.  But sometimes the sky will b covered with white fluffy clouds as far as i can see. Then the sun will slowly peek up over the mountian top. The clouds change into a beautiful iridescent sky.

It makes me smile and i say "morning auntie". It isnt often that you see a rainbow.  When you do its usually for a quick moment n then it fades. Not ur rainbow tho. Ur rainbow shines so bright.  Sometimes a double rainbow. I love your rainbows like i love u.

Two months since you left us for your journey.  It seems a lifetime already.  I still have the urge to pick up the phone and call you for our weekly chats.  I miss you my daughter, my first born.  You will remain in my heart until we meet again some day in the future.  MOM

Mother's day was a hard one.  The first time in over 63  years that you were not in my life.  As usual I waited for your call.  I felt you in my heart and knew you were near.  Alana and two granddaughters did call.  That always helps.  I miss you my Kathi.  I often remember things that you did when you were small.  Some bring tears and others bring a smile.  peace and happiness for you.

Everyday i think to myself how lucky I was to have an aunty like you! So caring and loving. Endless hours of laugher and you telling me what to do! :) I know you hear me talk to you every morning and look down on all of us. I start to cry and I have to remind myself how much happier you are now! I love you aunty and I'll be talking to you later!

Happy Birthday my Kathi.  That hot day in Kentucky and you were in no hurry to get  born.  I miss you and our conversations and our sometimes heated discussions but the love never stopped.  I miss your "Hi Mom. it's just me"  I hope by now you have found all the people who left us behind and loved you.  We'll meet again in God's time.  MOM

I hope by now you and Roland have found each other.  I can't believe that you both left me within 6 months.  It has been very hard to even face another day.  There have been some very dark days when I didn't think I could go on.  I have some things to finish up here on earth and some day we will all be together again.  I miss you both more that you will ever know.  MOM

Happy Birthday to my first born.  Today was so hot just like that day in Kentucky when you finally decided to make your appearance.  A little late but you made it.  You were supposed to be here for your grandfather's birthday but you were a week late.  I miss our talks on the phone I miss your voice, I miss your beautiful and thoughtful cards and most of all I miss having you in my life.
