Oh where do I start Mrs Apricot Splender the Queen of OCH with the pretzels and mustard on Night Shift or the Snow Globe talks on Day Shift with home made bread and butter on the weekend for the A-Team you would make every weekend we worked. I will always treasure our talk on Wednesday. You have taught me a lot we have had many laughs thru the years. Now you are flying high dancing singing to Elvis with your Momma and Daddy. Our hearts are breaking but we wouldn't bring you back for anything. Just know we love you to the moon and back. For one last time I think it might rain Mrs Kathy.

To the family my heart is with you all. Kathy loved you all dearly.

We have been friends for nearly 40 years and I can't imagine life without you in it. In all those years we never had an argument, and I always felt I could tell you anything...nothing was off limits.  I think you felt the same way about me.   I was always proud to call you my friend.  You were a very good nurse not only caring for your patients but caring about them.  Sure we'd complain but in the end we'd both agree there was nothing we'd rather be.  Nursing was more than a job for you, it was your calling.  If you were listening to me right now you'd make light of it, laugh and say "Oh, sure I'm Saint Kathy".  Well, Saint Kathy I miss you more than I can ever say.
