My sincere condolences to Kathy's family at this most difficult time. I will miss chatting with her when we would both be arranging our wares at This Olde Stuff. And, what a nice surprise it would be when I would run into her at a local yard sale. I will miss her lovely smile and charming, elegant sense of self. May she rest in peace.
