I have such good memories of spending time with Kathy and Daisy. I can still see the balloons rising and lowering, in the corner of the kitchen counter, when wine was being made. We didn’t get to drink any of it.;~ We sat for hours talking and playing cards. Kathy, I miss you and share in your sorrow.
I have warm memories of being in your home in Arthurdale many years ago; I am not sure how your mother put up with us Kathy! I know she will be greatly missed by her loved ones and I pray for you all.
Kathy and Family, So sorry for the passing of your mom, I know you made her comfortable and were able to keep her in your home. I didn’t know her but I know she was a special lady. God Bless, Carolyn

Kathy, so sorry to hear of your Mothers passing…I wish there was something I could do or say…you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers
Rest in peace Aunt Daisy! You will be greatly missed!
So sorry for the loss of your mother, Kathy. There is no one like a mother, and your mother was very special. She always took an interest in you and made sure you had the best of everything. When we were in high school, she made the best parties and food for us. I attended several including the pool parties and the after graduation party. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
