Kathy, or as I called her, “momma” was a giver. Whether it was love, a specific item, friendship, or a hug, if you were in need of something, she would find a way to get it to you. This also made her the world’s best gift giver! I will so miss sitting on the couch and just talking about anything and everything. It is so hard to see someone go that had such an affinity for life. My love and condolences to the entire family! Xoxo
