    I can’t tell you how much you are loved and will be missed! I thank you for all you have done and given us over the many years. Words will never express the gratitude. Ryan is very happy that you can now run and jump because you know that seems to be all he does and all he has ever done and anyone that does it with him is the best. Please jump any time, I will even allow it in the house when its you! :o) Please watch over my boys for me and guide them and keep them safe. All my love, Wendy PS I will still NEVER forget the first time meeting you… Aaron all excited about his new skiis, they leaned on the back side of the counter, when all of a sudden they fell over and gouged the arm on the chair to your new dining room set. I will NEVER forget that shriek and yelling at Aaron. I know YEARS later all we could do was laugh, and we will continue! Thanks again!

    I will always remember the times that I spent with Aunt Kathy when my parents would go out of town and, later, when I moved to Rochester as a graduate nurse. Aunt Kathy and I would have a cold beer together at least once or twice each week as I borrowed her vacuum cleaner. We would laugh like crazy and I loved the fact that she gave me the thumbs-up when she met my husband Ed for the first time! Aunt Kathy always has and always will hold a very special place in my heart. May God watch over Uncle Chuck and their children and grandchildren as well as Aunt Kathy’s sisters and brothers and give them peace that she is with Him. With Love, Mary Alice

    Mom, Thank you for bringing me up to be a great, caring, and compassionate person. I couldn’t have picked a better Mom. I feel honored that I was able to be with you all 118 days you were in the hospital. I will continue to pray for you every day until I can join you in heaven. I know you are on that porch like the one in Maui waiting for Dad and I to join you. Hang loose and a great big Aloha! My God rest your beautiful and perfect soul. Love Your ‘Angel Girl’, Cory xoxoxx

    One of my fondest memories of Aunt Kathy was when she and her boyfriend,’chuck’ took colleen,Jeff and myself to the Wilson fire hall to see Santa Claus. Sitting in the back of the car driving through the country as Aunt Kathy is pointing out the houses decorated for the holidays. Then their was the time when Aunt Kathy was over visiting mom, as they were sitting in the kitchen Jeff comes running in to the house yelling for mom’s attention and Aunt Kathy replied to his inquiry answering in the same voice as our mom’s and never missing a beat. the look on Jeff’s face as he saw Aunt Kathy sitting there was priceless. Aunt Kathy you will be missed, thank you. We love you. ‘Little Bobby’

    Rest in peace, Aunt Kathy. You will be dearly missed, but we know that you are in a better place.

    Aunt Kathy, I cannot tell you how often I think about you. I will never forget our conversation the last time I saw you at Jeff’s home for a Fourth of July party and your sitting down next to me and, out of nowhere, you placed your arm around my shoulders, looked into my eyes and said, ‘Nette, you are the strongest woman I have ever known. I am so proud of you for hanging so tough. Your girls are beautiful and it is so obvious that they adore you.Great job, Nette! Great job!’. I will carry those words in my heart always.
