Met you in the Nevus Outreach conference in Chicago some years ago, where me and my daughter had come all the way from Norway. We had great talks and it was comforting for me to meet you since my daughter has the same skin condition as you. My biggest condolences to your sons and the rest of the family.

Ingeborg.

Kathy was the mother of my childhood best friend Kris, and she was always the most warm and welcome person every time I would come over to their home. I can’t say enough nice things about Kathy, so I’ll summarize with this: Kathy was a wonderful and caring mother who touched the hearts of all those around her. My thoughts are with her family and friends, in hope they can find peace with the happy memories and photos they have. Scott Chaput

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Now I'm holding your family in my thoughts and on my heart as You have been there for many of us. Cindi Colby
