    Reid and Stephanie and Blaine and Laurie,

    Sue and I were sad to hear the news of Kathy's passing.  We were fortunate that both of our kids had Kathy as their teacher.  As the principal at LPC Elem, I very much enjoyed working with Kathy. Her sense of humor and her dedication to the students were always evident.  Our thoughts and prayers go to all the family members.

    Dear Reid and Stephanie and Blaine and Laurie,

    We are sad not to be able to attend the services for Kathy. Dave is sick and on this morning we were ready to leave, he was unable to travel or get on a plane. Although we hadn’t seen Kathy for a long time, this November when we went on the cruise with Chris, Kim, and Kathy, we were reconnected and are grateful for that and for having the time to spend together. It was very special. Sending our love and thinking of everyone,

    Dave and Lisa
