She was a great lady and a pleasure to care for over these many years, as well as working with her in the “ good old days” when Winsted Hospital was still open. She will be greatly missed!
Sorry I was unable to attend her celebration- I broke my leg and was having surgery.

Dear Jeff,

I am truly sorry for your loss. After reading all about Kathy, it is quite clear, that she was a wonderful woman who touched many lives, while adding humor, kindness, joy and light to the world around her. Kathy’s amazing spirit and goodness shall remain with you always. It is time to truly celebrate her incredible life and from this day forward, the stars will forever shine brighter!

I hope that countless memories of love & laughter will continue to carry you through this very difficult time. I also hope that this poem will offer some comfort to you and your entire family. Sláinte!


Softly Sprinkled Rain
By Greg O'Brien

A flower closes
as it dances on a twilight breeze
the clouds float by
as the sun says goodnight
and nothing seems changed
as the glow fades from sight
But this day is different
because of one silenced voice
a loved one has left us
and we’re faced with a choice
Do we renew our faith
and be thankful for time
or simply grieve with questions
and look for a sign
For it can be easy to show anger
or perhaps to feel blame
but instead simply remember
as you whisper their name
Strive to remember the joy
of the laughter once shared
and to make them a promise
that they’ll always be here
That you will include them in thought
as each new day dawns
whispering their name softly
as each day rolls on
For they will surely return this favor
as they help ease your pain
by opening flowers with gentle breezes
and softly sprinkled rain

Dear Jeff's, Sending you both lots of sympathy from MN. My time shared with Kathy personally was small - but those times we shared were always fun and full of humor. Jeff Sr - I remember especially how she could put you in your place when needed - yet in a fond sort of way. It's sad that you will not have fun personal times together in these upcoming retirement years. She was an accomplished woman and you should feel great about the years you shared. Grieve and be well - both of you - I'm certain she would want it that way.
