Our deepest sympathy to the family. It is never easy to loose a loved one. Kathryn was a special person and I always loved to talk to her. I think we could have talked for days. She called me one day last summer and we talked for about and hour and then I called her back for another hour or so. I have enjoyed the Niners sisters cookbook very much and hoped there would have been a second one. Lorraine bought it for my birthday, cuz I love cookbooks. I know Lorraine would be saddened of Kathryns' passing if she knew what was going on completely. Lois sends her love from Arizona. She said she would stay out to Kathryn and Eds farm on weekends and part of the summer when she was in High School and she loved it. They were so good to her. God Bless all of you. Judy and Blaine
The whole family has our sympathy on the death of Kathryn. She was a very special lady Peace-- Larry and Sandra
Lynda, Steve, Joyce and family, May you find peace and comfort in the sure promise of the resurrection for those who beleive in our Lord Jesus Christ. As we mourne the death of our loved ones, we also rejoice in the gift of passing from this life into eternal life with Jesus and those who have gone on before us. I hope to see you Saturday. God bless, Dave <><
