George, I am sorry I did not get to make to the viewing or funeral. I had to sign one of the people that I take care of into hospice and it took several hours. I will be praying for you. God Bless, Chris Rutan

I have known Kathryn many years (1950's) but it was about ten years ago that I finally had a chance to get with her and other Orphans at our Reunion's. In all the years apart, she had not changed from being the outgoing person that she was in the home. What a personality!! Kathryn had photo albums of all the kids from the Home and it was great seeing those pictures and have Kathryn tell us about each one. I don't think she ever forgot anybody. I will miss her more than I can say and I ask God's peace be upon all her family. What a lady... Liz Plunkett

George and Family, We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you during this difficult time. Although we didn't know Kathy as well as we knew you, we sure do remember her "famous potato salad" you always brought in for our work functions. We still crave it! We all hope you are doing well. Please take care of yourself. Sincerely, Jennifer Fortune and Your Friends at Zipp/Celadon

My Aunt Kathy was spunky, quirky and the best story teller I have ever met. She was a lot of fun to be around, you couldn't help but laugh or at least smile when you were with her; her spirit was contagious. I will never forget her and Uncle George coming to visit, she would sit by me at the piano and ask me to play song after song, we would sing and she always made me feel really special and very loved. I remember learning a song for her called "Palms of Victory." I know where she is at right now, and I imagine her happy as always only now I imagine her with palms of victory and crowns of glory just like the song says. I love you very much, Uncle George, and am praying that you can feel our love and draw strength from the prayers of all of your loved ones at this time.

Dear Uncle George, I can't tell you just how much I love you and miss you, and I wish I could be there with you. However, I do not feel that Leah would make the trip. She's a little hyper, and I have no idea where she got that from! LOL! Aunt Kathy has ALWAYS been special to me. She could walk into a room and light it up with her smile. I NEVER remember seeing her angry or upset in anyway. Such a positive and amazing woman! She loved and cared about everyone she met. She had this way of making you feel like you were the most special person on earth...without leaving anyone else out! I can't explain it, but it takes a magnificent person to do that! I will never forget all the visits she made with you to MS. She always laughed when Sherry and I showed interest in secular music, and laughed even more at those memories. But most of all, she always took an interest in us. "Play me a song, girls"...and she lined each song ending with praise on how well we were doing...whether it was the truth or not. LOL! I was really small, but I remember on one occasion my mom telling her (right before we said our goodbyes) that if you ever had MS mud between your toes, you would NEVER want to leave. Aunt Kathy said she had to take a piece of MS back home with her, so she filled a Mason Jar full of red MS dirt before she left. LOL! I didn't want her to fill a Mason jar full of dirt! I wanted to get a bucket of water, make some mud for y'all to try it and never leave!!! LOL! For all the dolls she made us, for all the blankets she made us...they are like Aunt Kathy...priceless, made with love and one of a kind. I've taught Leah that the blanket Aunt Kathy made her is special. She wouldn't even go to the babysitter's house the other day without it!!! Before putting her to bed at night, Leah would cuddle up in her special blankie, and we recently made a ritual to pray for God to please make Aunt Kathy well. And He did! Now, we tearfully thank Him for His healing of her body and for the opportunity to see her again one day. I miss her so much...this all still seems like a nightmare! But God instructs us to spiritually rejoice in death, and because of Him we can...even though we are personally missing her and always will. My life is better because she was in it, and this world would be a better place if there were more like her!!! I can't imagine just how much you are hurting right now, but please take care of yourself, Uncle George. Lots of Prayers, Hugs and Kisses to one of my favorite uncles!!! I love you so much!

Although we only met with George and Kathy a couple of times, it was a pleasure to get to know them both. We just wish we were geographically closer to get to know you all better. Kathy was a fantastic person to know and welcomed us into her home with open arms and we loved every moment we shared with her. I am half brother to Rick, Joe and Kevin by Richard Dean Howard Sr. Our thoughts and prayers are with George and Family. Our hearts go out to you during this time of your loss. God bless you all.
