Kathleen and I became friends our Freshman year at Trinity High. I knew George before she did. They met through a mutual friend. She has graduated to a better life. I look forward to meeting her again there. My prayers are for George and the family.

Kathleen was a very "giver". When we had a outdoor wedding planned, she sent some landscaping folks over to our house to help with yardwork. Her generosity was felt by many. Blessings rho the family...

Kathleen will always be alive in my heart. She taught us all how to be a community of faith with liturgical joy in every celebration, with genuine hospitality and welcoming for all, how to be kind and generous with each other, and to love unconditionally. She shared her wisdom, and brought wonderful pastors and programs to us. I am honored to call her my mentor and friend. May her family find peace and joy in their wonderful stories of her life and love for them.
