    Once again my condenser to the whole family. Just reading this obituary brings me tears as the majority ststed what she loved to i have had the pleasure of enjoying her company. She tried her best to tesch me how knitt/crotchet i just wasnt catching on. She would laugh at me and reassure thats knitting is so easy!! I do crochet with hair not fabric then had a whole nother conversation about hair as hair styling is the most we have common. I wish i was able to have seen her one last time face to face and maybe enjoy a cup of coffee just i used to with my own mama. My mom passed not too long so miss kathleen passing really hit home. The only ONE thing i didnt know was that she was a great grandmother 🥰. Miss kathleen i know you never met my mom if you see ger up there you will know who she is and yall can have yall heavenly coffee and share memories of the golden girls!!! Rest on in the Lord miss kathleen for you will be missed very much❤️
