Kathleen, I will forever remember you as the beautiful wife, loving mother and most gracious lady. It has been my privilege to know you. I have often thought of you and the family and have very fun memories of all of you. My God hold you in his tender mercies as you are one of his angels now.

As the across the street neighbor in Dogtown(Sanford Ave.) of Kathy, Mary, Clariss, Lala, Little Dave(my buddy), Susie, Jimmy, and Bobby(my new golfing buddies), I was sorry to read of Kathy's passing. While I never met the good doctor Harold, I know you were a blessing for Kathy and the family. Great memories from our neighborhood. I can still smell Lala's donuts frying. May Kathy rest in peace.

As the family knew me, Little Bobby Strathman

What a special lady! Dearest Hal, Jaime, Lisa, Kim and Johl, Kathleen was always a joy to be around - a breath of fresh air - and always good for a laugh over something either we - or one of the kids had done. I will always remember our chats - and the times we shared - although all too brief. Doug joins me in sending you our thoughts and prayers. May you find peace in the knowledge she is free from pain - and with her Lord.
With deepest Sympathy,
Betsy and Doug Domoto
