Always kind and willing to listen was Kathy. A bright spot in the Life Investors days was when she brought in a cardboard box of puppies to the office on third floor near the Claims Department. I picked out a pup that day. Kathy brought joy to others in untold ways. My heart goes out to her family.

Amy, Jamie and Michael, I'm so very sorry, please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Kathy was my babysitter when I was little, once she had you twins, I babysat for you. We also worked together at Aegon for a good many years, she will be greatly missed.

Kathy was a friend of mine from the moment I met her. We always enjoyed vast conversations and I am so happy that I got to visit with her in Vegas a couple years ago. Kathy loved her family to the core and it was what filled her life with the greatest of love. May God allow resting in his arms for all that are feeling a loss. My deepest condolences. Thinking of you Amy, Jamie and Michael.

One day I will see you on the other side,
