"I had the pleasure of knowing Kathleen for a short time, but I enjoyed her humor and friendship. She will be missed. With much LOVE."

"While in Germany, we were told that Aunt Teenie had died. Since she had lived such a vibrant life, we were only saddened that she had been in some distress before she died. We were in PA in January to celebrate her birthday and we will always remember the joy we had in being together that day. Since we can not be there, we planted a bush in her honor--The Teenie Bush. Miss you always."
