Mark and Debbie, I am sorry to hear of your loss. Your mom was a wonderful, loving and caring person. Some of our families fondest memories are of all of you. Kathryn was the best next door neighbor anyone could ask for, the door was always open for me to slip over and spend some time with her. Please know that even though the Spivey clan moved, you are all still in our hearts from those almost 30 years we spent being neighbors.
Love,
Sarah Spivey Ragan and family

Kathryn's joyful countenance and faithful encouragement will be so very much missed. She is truly one of God's angels that He placed in my life and I will miss her terribly.
May the God of all comfort envelope you Mark and Debbie in these days ahead and heal the sorrow of your hearts. God bless you all.
Laura N. Ensley, BAC
