Guestbook

I'm so sorry to hear of Kathy's passing. I have so many great memories of our times together at Kmart and going out for lunches where we could talk and have such great heart to hearts. She was a dear friend who I missed terribly when I moved away from the area. I miss her already. I'll be keeping everyone in the family in prayers Dana and the girls know that I'm thinking of you. Your mom was special hold on to those good memories that you have they'll get you through those tough times. I pray that God give you comfort and peace through your difficult days. Terri Long
