When Nick Eninger called me and told me the tragic news that Kathy had passed it broke me into a million pieces, Kathy was a mother figure to me she swept me under her wing and took flight she helped me get on my 2 feet and treated me like I was her son. Over the time me and Kathy knew each other I kept loving her more and more over time. Kathy had a heart of gold and was the most caring person in the entire world! I’m sorry for your loss. Y’all are in my prayers and thoughts. She is sitting up in heaven with god right now looking down on us and protecting all of us. Love, Cody Rook❤️

My heart first goes out to your boys - you took them into your home and loved them like no other!
I’m going to miss our visits to McDonald’s for a coffee with the morning group, The Carlton’s, Carol Williams, Eloise Matthes, Stella Blake and so many others. . . How we would get together and talk for hours. And your beautiful needlework was your passion. You made so many heart filled gifts for me. I have 5 angels on my bed stand that I will treasure until I meet you in heaven - sweet friend! Rise up newest angel of God!
