  2. I can still remember the small things from when I was younger. The gnomes you collected, the bruce springsteen album that you listened to, that you liked Frisch’s Big Boy, when you worked at the small Frankton library…I could go on and on. The Sharp family was a main staple of my life growing up. My prayers are with Mike, Tim, Jennifer, and all the extended family. May they take peace in knowing that you will always watch over them from above as you did here on earth.

  3. So honored to have been her friend…she was like a sister I never had. Kathy was a very special person that has touched so many lives with her love & kindness. I will cherish all the wonderful memories of our road trips & laughing till our stomachs hurt. So many fun times with Carol & Joyce.

  4. God bless you Kathy, the Earth is darker but heaven is brighter! I can already feel your heavenly light shining down on your family and friends because that’s who you were and who you always will be! A bright heavenly light. When the sun shines and when the skies are their most beautiful blues I will know that it is you. All my love!

  5. Kathy will be missed by many. She was always so kind. Rest in Peace, gone way too soon. Sending Prayers to the family.

  6. I’m so pleased I got to meet you Kathy, our friendship, albeit short will forever be remembered.
    May your journey to heaven be on the wings of angels, into the arms of those who have gone before.
    Sincere condolences to all of your family from “Twinnie”, Spain 💖
