Aunt Kooter,
I'll always remember your love of all animals, your shine for your kids and grands, loving husband, and your faith in God. I pray for peace and comfort for them all.

Favorite memory, that she always took the kids (us) or our kids for her country walks during her visits. And just like Pa, collected the pets and animals.

I thank God for sharing his precious angel, Kathleen, with us, but heart broken that she is gone too soon. I'll keep you all in loving prayer. Please be reminded that she will be watching over each of you. Talk to her, and be assured that you will joyously meet again in time. Until then, she would want you to be happy. Hugs and Prayers

It is hard to know what to say at a time such as this. I have many fond memories of visiting and playing with "Kooter" as a kid. Many family reunions. Barbara and I will be praying for you, Frank, and all the family.
