Mr. Kehres and family:

I worked with Kathy when I was a fiscal consultant at SPARCC.  I just wanted to let you know Kathy was a wonderful person.  She was a devoted employee and did her job with honesty and integrity.  She will be missed.  You all are in my prayers.

Dear Greg, Goldie and family,

I will cling to the many memories of times that Kathy and I played together as children, attended youth group together at the Edinburg United Church, played flutes in the band and rode many hayrides together! Unfortunately, as life happens and we take different paths as young adults, Kathy married and I went away to college, our paths did not cross as often until recent class reunions. Kathy was always a dear, kind friend and I am blessed to have  spent time with her. I can't imagine the hurt you are feeling, but rest assured that we will see her again, in our faith through Jesus Christ. I am sorry I will not be in Ohio for her services, as I have just moved out of state. My condolences to you and her children. God Bless you, Love, Carol Gibson-Bauman
