Condolence & Memory Journal

Pam,Julie and TJ.
Words can not express my sorrow over your Mom's passing! She was one of the best human beings I have ever met. She was a joy to work with! She made coming to work each day fun and an adventure. She was always smiling and laughing,hard to have a bad day around Kathy. I was friends with her on Facebook,but haven't been on in a month,so I missed the sad news. She was special and one of a kind! When I think of her,I always smile!

To Kathy's grieving children, grandchildren and sisters...
I am so sorry for this heartache. I will always treasure the fun we shared over these many years. I feel blessed to have been a friend who was involved in "the Boyle's" and their hilarious antics (most of which Miss Kathy played a major part in). I will miss her huge smile and "nasally laughter"!

My deepest sympathy for the Boyle & trenda family's. Through the luck of the Irish ( Barb&Denny), I was fortunate to meet and spend a lot of great times with my girlfriend Kathy. May her family find comfort in all the found memories of Kathy and may she Rest In Peace.

I remember Kathy by the wonderful person that she was. For all the big smiles she gave me when we came across each other. About 3 weeks ago we passed by each other twice as we were taking a walk around the neighborhood. And again, I clearly remember the uplifting smile she gave me as she waved from across the street. I will never for get it. We will be thinking of your family in this hard time.

Life can cut us like a fiery sword. It hits when we least expect it! We never imagine how bad it can hurt. It is through our faith and loved ones that we make it through the darkest hours. Our belief in the Easter promise of eternal life is what makes us strong. Your Mom is in her paradise with your Dad. We are the ones hurting and suffering not them. If you keep calling on God he will strengthen you and your faith and give you the Grace to endure.
We will always remember your Mother's infectious smile.

Sending our love and hugs.
