I want wish you and your family my sincere sympathy in the loss of your loved one. Mary Davis and I think of you eevery now and then.

Kathleen- Edith as I knew her- was a sweetheart of a woman. Though suffering fron MS later in her life, she never complained about it.  I enjoyed listening to her stories about her life and adventures. I know the thing she enjoyed most was flying her airplane and so wanted to fly again before she passed away. She's an angel now and can fly whenever she wishes. I hope she can continue her adventures in heaven and can be peaceful ever after.
