  1. Dear Frank and Family,
    I writing to express my deepest sympathy and to say that I am sad to hear about Kathy’s passing. I opened up the Courier News and as soon as I saw her beautiful face I knew it was Kathy. Kathy and I met in kindergarten and remained friends and graduated Plainfield High in 1971. Kathy was one of my very first caucasian friends, and although race, religion and ethic background does not matter to me, we both learned a lot from each other. I would visit her home and she would come to Berkeley Terrace and have fun and laughs with my crazy family. Life was good and clean back then because of people like Kathy. She was always a beautiful, sweet person and I know you and the your family have a lot of fond memories of Kathy you will treasure. You are in my thoughts and prayers. (Valerie (Koon) Palmer, 3 So. Grosser Place, Somerset, NJ 08873) Love, Valerie

  3. Dear Frank and Family, you don’t know me, but Kathy and I used to spend a LOT of time together when we were in Jr. High. I am quite saddened to learn of her passing, I am praying for you and yours. My husband and I bought Kathy’s Uncle Fred and Aunt Ruth’s house, 547 Second St. in Plainfield and lived there with our family for 20 years. So many things I remember, like Wed. night was spaghetti nite at 118 Sumner Ave., I saw Kathy at a laundermat and she gave me a picture of Wendy at 18 mos, which I still have in my album. We used to go downtown every Sat. am at 10 sharp!.,I went to the same nursing school as Kathy. We used to write to each other just for the sake of getting mail…every June 1st, including this one past, I say to myself, ‘today is kathy”s birthday’ and EVERY time I see a train, there was an old joke we used to share. Please send me a program, or prayer card, I’d like to have it. again, my thougts are with you all, she was a good friend. Address is 555 East Second St, Plainfield,N. J. 07060. Love, Marilyn
