    I just spoke with your mom last week and we had a nice long conversation. She was a special lady and I know she is in a better place. You and I met a few times in the Mobile Home Park and we actually had dinner together at the top of the hill. My deepest sympathy to you and family. God Bless her. I am the retired PSP who was good friends with Nick.

    Doug, Linda, & Pam & Kayla, My heart is aching over the loss of my very special friend. She was like a sister to me. We shared allot of laughs and allot of moments of crying also but she sure could tell a good joke when she wanted too. Doug I know that you was always there for your mother and for that she greatly appreciated having that special son in you. She alway could count on you, Linda your wife and Pam too. She sure was blessed to have you as her son. Your pay backs will come to you in double fold from our Lord. I talked with her sometimes two or three times a day so its going to be very hard for me. I sure will miss my special friend and all the laughs we had. I am sure that she is finally at PEACE now. What a beautiful reunion she is having this evening with her mother, her brother Rick and also her favorite companion, Nicholas too. A part of her died too when she lost Nicholas. PS. Joe will also miss those jokes of your too…….

    To all the family. I am so sorry for your loss. Kathy was a light to all of our visits. The ups, the downs, and even hearing her call me LITTLE GIRL will always be treasured in my heart. She is at peace now and the good lord will keep her in line.
