Dear David - I am sending you this note because I won’t be able to attend Kathie’s funeral. I will be in hospital having a procedure but Angelo will definitely be there to honour her life & I will be watching the service remotely. I really want to catch up with you personally to give you a big hug & kiss ? once you are ready & over the arrangements. For now - I send you these words that are not mine (you will know the song when you read the lyrics), but come from a special place in my heart for Kathie. ‘Hey Jude, don’t make it bad take a sad song & make it better The minute you let her into your heart then you can start to make it better, better, better. Oh- & anytime you feel the pain hey Jude, refrain. Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders for well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool By making his world a little colder” These lyrics show that if you keep her in your heart ❤️ the world & you will be better. GOD sent us these words so we can rise Up with new strength whenever we are faced with our hardest challenges. Angelo, Krystie & I will always love her & keep her in our hearts & memories forever. Rest In Peace beautiful girl, until we meet again.

Denny & John Schumann -

Dear David, Jarrad & Dan, Kathie was quite simply one of the kindest and most gentle souls that I had the privilege to meet. Her sweet smile and her ability to be aware always of how others were feeling was a rare trait in this sometimes complex world. She was a sun filled day, a song rippling through the breeze, a silver bright cloud and a whispering wind. I can still see her sparkling eyes, her reddish locks and I can still hear her laughter in the air. Goodbye... dear sweet Kathie I wish I was there love Denny

Karen Campbell -
