    I have so many wonderful memories. Greg and I used to spend every weekend at the lake with them. Kathy and I would watch old movies, Flashdance was one of our favorites! She is the only person that every time we were together or even talked on the phone made me laugh deep. I remember one time we were at the lake and she and I went To Walmart, when it came time for her to pay she wrote a check and I said oh Kathy is that the account that is closed? The check out lady did not know what to do and Kathy tried to explain I was just messing around and I kept on saying oh Kathy you will probably go to jail, we both got to laughing so hard it is a wonder we both weren't arrested. Kathy was a fabulous cook, she made the best lasagna ever and some cookies with brown sugar oatmeal and chocolate chunks that were amazing! She was a wonderful friend and someone who I will miss and think fondly of often. I hope Steve and the rest of the family will find comfort knowing we WILL see her again! I will anxiously await that day to hug her and be able to share one more deep belly laugh just like old times. She is loved .
