    James and I were so sorry to hear about “Kitty” passing away. The family has our deepest sympathy. We were so sorry that we didn’t get to attend her service as we were out of town this week and just returned late Friday evening. Kitty will always be remembered as a very dear neighbor and friend. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Margaret and James McDaniel
