My prayers are with Larry and the Wagner family for their loss. We always called Kathy the neighborhood Angel, as she was there for everyone at any time. Little did I know I would be there when she became an Angel. Do miss her on this trip and will always miss her at home. So glad we had this special time and fun together. Love you Kathy!
