When I think of Kitty, I think of her quick smile and gracious personality. She was such a sweet person. Kitty was a wonderful mother and grandmother. Her children, Eric and Jennifer, and her grandchildren were always her priority. I also smile when I think of her as the #1 Elvis fan. We will miss our sister-in law very much.

I've lost one of the most wonderful friends anyone could ask for. Kitty was a true friend for 35 years. I'll never forget the many trips taken with her... her gentle, caring spirit, her humor and most of all, her love for our Lord. To Sam, Griffin and Eric, my heart breaks for you during this most difficult time. Please know my heart shares your sorrow.
