Dear Family, I knew Kathy first at Enka High School where I worked and she went to school. Kathy was such a sweet young person that I have good memories of her from then. Later she came to Pole Creek and she was still the quiet, gentle lady I first met at EHS. Chuck and I will miss her in the years to come, but we know we'll meet her again when our time to go to Jesus comes! May you feel the Lord's arms around you over the days, weeks and years ahead. Our prayers and thoughts are with all her family and dear friends.

Jim and Diane, Our families have not kept in touch and I never knew Kathy. My mama told me what she knew and spoke highly of you all and how you were so proud of Kathy. I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure you will miss her every day from now on. Love and prayers from me and Ivan.

I wish to express my deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone cannot ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he(GOD) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our love ones we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected John 5:28-29. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days
