So sorry to hear of Kathy's passing. What a pleasure it was to have known this lady. I met her yrs ago we had become friends on a pool league. We enjoyed many times together hanging out at her house as well as mine. Lost track with one another as I moved around alot. Just thought of her the other day. Sorry for your loss Ralph. Many prayers of comfort.
