Kathy was an amazing lady! She was so warm & loving. She invited my partner & I on the ambulance to stop by for some wassel during the Christmas season one time. She hated that we were away from our families so she was going to adopt us into her family. Heaven definitely got a shining new angel! My prayers for your family!
