This beautiful woman was my aunt. How lucky I was to know her and be in her warm and friendly presence. I will miss the sound of her laugh. I know she’s in a better place and out of any pain and discomfort. Hug my sister for me Aunt Kathy. I will listen for the sounds of laugh on the gentle breeze. I love you, I miss you.

My aunt Kathy was an amazing and vivacious woman. I will miss her sense of humor and the sound of her laugh. Her home and presence were always a comfort and a safe space. I know you made many feel this way and its a mark of a life well lived. Rest now free from pain and suffering. Please hug my sister for me. I will listen for the sound of your laughter. It carries on the breeze now.
