Kathy, there are no words to describe the loss. You will be missed by so many. I will never forget your laugh, your smile or your warm loving heart. My forever friend. I’m so thankful that the sweet girl with the cat’s eye glasses picked me to be her friend so many years ago. ❤️

I remember Kathy when she worked at Fathers Restaurant. My husband and I were new to the area and Kathy helped us find whatever we needed at the time. She was so friendly and welcoming and I thought the hardest worker I knew up in VT. You were a good girl Kathy and I will always remember you fondly.

Forever in our hearts.
