So sorry for the loss of Kathleen. The Bible's promise at Acts 24:15 "there is going to be a resurrection" can be a source of comfort at this time. My condolences to your family. Psalm 34:18 assures that "God is close to the broken hearted".

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

Kathleen worked for me as a Senior Companion in Monroe County and was the most beautiful and gracious woman I have ever met. I will dearly miss her.

The Mays Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Kathleen was such a sweet lady. I knew her through bingo and also through Hank and Thelma. She had such a sweet smile. May God Bless you all and remember all the good memories and May God keep you in the palm of his hand.
