    I was shocked and saddened to learn that Kathy passed away. I send my deepest sympathy to Fred and his family. My heart goes out to all of her family and friends. I have all the best memories of Kathy from our high school years and working together. Time moved on and we grew our lives and families but I always remembered all that we did. Kathy was a great friend and wonderful person. She will be greatly missed.
