    I’m so sorry for your loss. Kathy was more like my big sister rather than my cousin. She will be missed.

  3. Kathy was and still is a friend that I enjoyed working with at the Brighton VG’S grocery store. She was a very warm person, a good listener and I loved giving her and receiving from her great big bear hugs. Kathy had a bubbly personality and an infectious Smile that made us Smile too. I missed her after she had to stop working and I still do. I’m sorry for your loss Harry, Sarah and Jason. May God keep you and Bless you thru these difficult times and Rejoice!! Kathy’s in no more pain!! Kathy’s with Jesus singing with God and all the angels in Heaven. Amen!!

    Harry,Jason,Sarah, we were so sorry to hear about the passing of Kathy. She was for sure one of our favorite hockey moms. Always enjoyed her rooting on Jason and the boys, when Jason played for the BULLDOGS at Brighton High School. Kathy was always a pleasure to be around. Would run into her at VG’s and she always had a smile on her face. GOD BLESS you all and STAY SAFE!

  5. When we first met Kathy & you, Harry, we knew we were going to be lifelong friends – then not too long after, family!!
    Kathy is a beautiful person through and through. We will all hold her memory in our hearts. So sorry she’s left us too soon – but grateful she’s no longer in pain. God be with you, Sarah and Jason, and their families, and everyone else, through this difficult time! Love y’all!!
