Andrew (grandson), We just wanted you to know how sorry we were to read of your grandmother’s passing. As people who were under her care in school, we can remember how she treated the students. She was tough, but fair. Our condolences to your entire family–Love you, Camille & Eugene
Kathryn always had a hug for me and my family. Although I am saddened by her passing, I rejoice in her life. A good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Kathryn led the good life and now walks hand and hand with Andrew amongst Angels.
