I am proud to say Kathy was my friend. May she rest in peace until I see her again on the other side.

Kathy was such a delight and fun to be around. I first met Kathy when she joined our real estate office in Springfield. We shared the same birthday and remembered each other every year after she left G&V. My deepest condolences to her family. She will surely be missed by all who knew her.

Dear Chad and Joe, We will pray that the Lord will give you comfort and peace during this trial. Kathy and I had good times together especially when your mom grandma and I would read out of her old Big family Bible. With love and prayers. Dan and Janet Kaffenbarger Psalm 34
