Sorry to hear about this Carl and Eric! She was always such a great lady and loved running into her at the animal hospital. Praying for all of you and your family.

With a heavy heart, I am sending my deepest sympathies to Kathy’s sons and family. It was my complete honor and privilege to serve her as one of my longest nail salon clients. I have just the fondest thoughts of Kathy and her beautiful family that she always shared wonderful stories about with great pride and joy. Know she will always be missed by me and my husband.
With blessings and prayers, Pam and Dan Coon
