Sending my thoughts and prayers to John and family. Kathy was my first supervisor when I started working at DAS. She was the kindest, most patient and considerate supervisor a person could ask for. Kathy and I shared a lot of good times, a lot of hard work, but we always made it through due to her excellent leadership. I have very fond memories of Kathy and I'm so sorry to hear of her passing.

I am sad to loose my sister. She is a very dear friend & I will miss her but she will ALWAYS be in my heart. What a beautiful family she is leaving behind. But God chose to take her to Heaven to be with him. He let us keep her for 66 years. I am & will continue to pray for my family as we share this grief. GOD IS OUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH, A VERY PRESENT HEIP IN TROUBLE. PSALMS 46:1. We will see Kathy again. Love Liz

We send our love and prayers during this difficult time. Kathy was such a sweetheart. We passed the word along to the retired State employees that were on our luncheon list. Many E-mail addresses I do not have so perhaps others will contact them. We are all here for you. Lovingly, Greg and Kay Tilton
