A precious memory I have of Kathy is the two of us designing and painting the figures for a large Nativity scene. Mr. Moore cut them out of plywood, and we painted the figures in the Moore family basement. I remember the scene being displayed in the Moore front yard for many years afterward. We had a wonderful time doing this.
Kathy was a good friend of my childhood. My condolences to her family and friends.

I am heartbroken. You were the kindest soul with the biggest heart, the best Director of nursing to all of us that you lead but most importantly you were a fearless patient advocate forever in their corner. So many wonderful memories of the years working under your leadership as well as your friendship. Peace to your family and all who loved her. Be at peace with your beloved John 💕
