    Kathy was a hoot not sure how else to put it. Kathy was a lot of fun and much fun to be around along with the girls from Clinton.  We spent time with her at least once a year for many years at the state AMVET bowling tournaments, but when we all got together it was like we all saw each other everyday. My condolences and those of the rest of the guys from Grundy Center go out to her family and friends. We know she will be missed by all. RIP Kathy till we bowl again.

    Mary and Family,

    I was deeply saddened to hear about Kathy.  Having lost a close family member myself recently, the grieving process can be difficult.  One way that I have found to cope is through comfort from the Scriptures.  I think especially of Psalms 34:18 where it says that Almighty God is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.  May it comfort you to know that God cares about you and will help you through this difficult time.
