My prayers and heart are with you. I loved my Aunt Katie and will miss her dearly. i will miss sending her cards and long letters. I will always remember spending special days with Aunt Katie this past May. She had such a bright smile and giggled like a little girl when she told stories of growing up. She was quite the little devil. She was always my favorite Aunt because she knew how to laugh, have fun and cared so much for her family. It wasn’t always an easy life for her but she always made the best out of everything. I wish I could be with you to share special memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you. All my love to you.
Dear family and friends, please accept my deepest condolences. May God’s promises found at Acts 24:15 and Psalms 37:29 bring you comfort during this difficult time.
The staff of Putnam County Hospice would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Kathryn. We will keep Kathryn and all of you in our thoughts and prayers.
