My grandmother was one of the greatest people to ever be on earth. She never stopped preaching love, peace and hope to us. Above all else she valued family and God. When I was having a bad day I knew she was someone I could go to too make it better, she was someone who would always listen. Not to mention she was one the funniest people I ever knew her laugh could make anyone light up. She is the definition of sunshine and I know everyday that there is the sun in the sky is a day she’s looking over us. I hope to carry on her hopes of this world becoming a kinder place. I love her and miss her more than anything. She was adored by everyone she ever met her smile will always be my favorite thing.

My heart breaks for Kathleen’s family. I have so many fond memories of time spent with her, including having her as one of my bridesmaids in 1987. May she rest in Heavenly peace. 💔
