Please accept my deepest sympathy. Aunt Kitty was a very special lady and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Love, Julie Applegate (Fort Wayne, IN)
We are saddened to learn of Kittie’s death. We have many fond memories of her. She and Bill were dear friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time of loss. May God’s presence, peace, and love surround you and hold you during this difficult time.
For the very short time we knew Kittie – we knew she was such a classy lady. We have enjoyed the home we purchased from them in Southgate and love the house and the yard that was created by Bill and Kittie. Rest in peace, Kittie. Our deepest sympathy to you Bill and your entire family. May fond memories carry you though this most difficult time.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I just remember your parents and my parents had some good times together. I remember shopping at your grocery in Savona. And I remember you, Bill, playing Santa Claus and Kittie was your helper. Memories are God’s gift to us and I am thankful for those great memories. Kittie was a beautiful lady. I just wanted to let you know we are thinking of you and you are in our prayers.
Dear Bill, Dana, Vicki, Billy and families, Please accept my deepest sympathy and know that I am keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers as you say farewell to your dear Kittie Kay. I have so many wonderful fun filled memories of time spent with all of you and when I think of what a loving person she was to me it makes me smile. I hope that all of your precious moments will do the same for you in the coming days. Heaven really did gain another beautiful angel. Hugs to all of you. With Love, Juli
PRAYERS FOR YOUR FAMILY.
