I am sending loving sympathy to Amanda & her family, and all other family members. I feel so sad for each of you. Kathy was such a warm-hearted person. She was my mama’s CNA until mama passed on. She showed mama so much love and mama loved her so much. I was always so thankful to have her included in our family. I know she and mama will have a good heavenly visit. May God comfort each of you is my prayer.
