    Dean & Susy, We wanted to express our sincere sympathy to you. Words cannot express enough how our hearts go out to both of you.

    Dean: We only had the opportunity of meeting you a couple of time; but, we know how “very special” you were to Kathy, as you were to us. This will be a very difficult time, but we hope you know our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Susy: I know you both were very close, and it will be a hard time for you; but, hope the memories and the great times you all had together, and with both your families, will help you get through this very difficult time.

    We really regret we will be unable to attend the visitation or service; but, the weather is a huge factor.

    Love to You Both.

    Vicky Arnold, Pat Ratcliff, Mary Cleaver and Cindy McKenney.

    Dean and family,

    Sorry I will not be attending the visitation for Kathy this evening. I hope the flowers were acceptable, I delivered them last night before the snow was too deep to get through.

    Kathy was such a dear, giving person. We have missed her friendly face at the office and I know she will be missed by so many at the Eagles. A wonderful mother and grandmother and wife – she filled all of her roles with such compassion and true steadfast support of the family. She will never be replaced, we can only go forward and remember her as the beautiful person she showed us we all should be…..

    With much love,

    Lisa Nelick and family (Jamie, Martin, and Charlotte)
