    I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Kathy was a wonderful an strong woman. I will miss her greatly. I have no words to heal your pain. She is with her mom and dad and my mom and dad now. There is no pain, no suffering where she is, only happiness an peace. This does not help us that are left behind. But we all have the promise to see her again. May God give your family the strength you will need to sustain you until that time. All my love to you my family.
