ALAN: I had dinner tonight with Sharon Faukner Flake and we both recalled good days in the past with Kathy and you. First Pres is still here in Muscatine although a shadow of its former self. I moved back to Muscatine in 1994 and built a house which works for me and makes my piano happy. If you return to Muscatine, please be sure to find time for a visit. RR

From: Ben Jones of Marchon Eyewear. I have called on Kathy for 17 years including time when she was with Kick. My dear Family, I learned that when visiting Kathy I should allow an extra 15 to 30 minutes. Why you ask. Because she was very proud of her family and always wanted to share pictures of kids, wedding (very nice) etc. Such a nice lady and now that I think about it, she never said a bad word about anyone...... just always a perfect lady. She will be missed and I am so, so sorry. We trusted each other as she gave me a free hand at keeping up with her frame inventory. My son is being inducted into the National Honor Society Tues PM so I am sorry to say I cannot be there. But, I know in my heart that Kathy would want me to see him and that she is watching. Bless all of you. Ben JonesClearwater

Dearest Alan, Derek & Gwen, Dana & Michael & Luke, I was so stunned to learn of your loss, but so grateful for Alan to call. Your beloved wife, mother, & grandma is now forever with our Gracious Lord & Savior. She was a very special & treasured friend to me, even though the miles separated us for many years. God had given us a bond as sisters-in-Christ that was an on-going encouragement & strength. She was such a loving, caring, wise, compassionate, intelligent, & fun gal, with a deep & abiding faith in the Lord. I was so excited to learn many years back that she'd found a church home in which to share her many gifts & be blessed in return. Her legacy of faith, devotion, love, commitment, & giving lives on in you, her beloved husband & children & anyone who knew & loved her. Truly, to know Kath, was to love her. The sweet serene spirit of this beautiful, treasured, petite-in-stature but huge-in-heart, daughter-of-the-Most-High-God will continue to be reflected in & through your lives as the countless memories you share help bring you all some comfort & peace as you grieve her absence. But, one day we'll all have a grand reunion in Heaven, together! P T L! You're most fondly remembered, & remain in our hearts, thoughts, & prayers. Look to Jesus, the Author & Finisher of our faith. What an Awesome God we serve! Love in Christ ~ Diane & Family

Al,Dana & Mike,Derek & Gwen, We are grieving with you and for you. You have had the privilege of having a wife and mother who loved you with all her heart,who loved unconditionally, who gave without expecting a thing in return and had the sweetest spirit of anyone we have ever known. We have lost a sister we loved dearly. I will miss her cards that she faithfully sent every year on special occasions. I have kept them all.Honor her memory in all that you do and take comfort in knowing how proud she was of her family. I still can see the fifteen year old my brother called his girlfriend and in my eyes she will always be young. Love to you all.
