    Kathryn and I worked together at CVS in 2000. The pharmacy was serious in our work, but Kathryn could still bring smiles, giggles, and laughter to the day. At Lake City Hospital, even if a test caused concern, she put me at ease, because she had me cracking up. Over the years whenever we saw each other, she was always a friend. I shall miss those moments and will always remember her with a smile. I am so sorry for your loss. Praying for you all.

    Kathryn and I went to school together up until 5th grade.
    In late 85 my dad passed away and my mom moved us back to Boston.
    Kathryn and I wrote letters over the years to keep in touch.
    I was so happy to get that letter each time
    Just to know I got mail addressed to me.
    I still look back on the days getting the mail and finding a letter from her.
    I was so excited!
    RIP Kathryn you will be missed

    Kathryn was always such a source of happiness and humor! She had a way of telling stories that made everyone feel as though they were right beside her instead of just someone HEAR ING the story. I met her back in 1993 or 94 while at Converse with my sister. She continued to be close with our family from that moment on!! Prayers be with the family. I’m so sorry for your loss! She will be missed!!
