Jim and family,
So sorry to hear about Kathie, she is at peace and God will watch over her. Prayers for you and your family at this hard time in your life.
My first niece! Thinking about you and your family at this time and wish we were living closer.
“ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD”
My heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family. May God put her in a special place where she will be watching us, the people who loved and cherished her!
Kathie was part of my “work family” for so many years. We laughed together, cursed a bit, figured out how to follow some rules and how to skirt around others. She was a woman with a big heart for the underdog. She didn’t suffer fools — she made them suffer. If you know what I mean then you knew Kathie too. Feisty doesn’t begin to cover it. Gone too soon. Rest In Peace, or else raise H3LL!
Kathie was often one of the first people we future graduates would talk to when we first considered applying to ODU PT. Kathie may have been feisty and irascible, but she also was incredibly helpful and supportive. Kathie had answers and if she didn’t she’d find someone for you who did. She was a great friend for the ODU School of PT. Godspeed, Kathie; blessings and peace to your family and friends.
To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Kathie is resting in the arms of her Savior. The little time that I knew Kathie, I felt a warm & wonderful woman who loved God & her family. She was very sick & struggled so long to feel whole again. My prayers for her never ceased & she was so loved by all who knew her. Jim & family know that a loving & just God doeth all things well. God will not leave you nor forsake you in your time of sorrow. She fought a good fight, she finished the course set before her & is now in the presence of God & loved ones gone before her. No more pain. She is at peace. Rest in Him family.
Kathie and Jim, you are both always in our hearts.
Kathie and I started out as co-workers but ended as friends. Kathie was a pleasure to be around. Kathie will missed but always carry a place in my heart. My heart and prayers are with the family. GOD has carried home to be with him and one will meet again.
My sincerest sympathies to all the family members of sweet Kathie. From the day I first met her I wished I had known her longer. I will never forget my visits with her and how much she loved her family. Her laughter was contagious and I will always cherish my fond memories of her. May God bless and comfort all those that loved her.
