I have so many memories of Katy and my mom laughing and having fun together as I was a little girl going up in the blocks. Their friendship was a lesson learned. Please accept my deepest sympathies and condolences. Vicky, Freddy, and Kenny, I’m so sorry for your loss. I know she will be missed by many.
My condolences to Kathy’s family. I was introduce to Kathy by my wife Darlene They were best friends, now they can once again be best friends in heaven. I am so sorry for your loose.
You were a class act. Always dressed to the nines with the best accessories and those high heels! You will be missed by many. My condolences and love to Victoria, Kenny and Fred.
Heaven is blessed with the kindest of ladies. She was beautiful inside and out.
I knew Kathy through our good friend Patty Kunze. I have known her for many years. We would be together at parties such as 4th of July, birthday’s, Christmas time,etc. She was always a very kind friend. She was always friendly and a compassionate person. I also knew her while I was a customer at Dillard’s. She was always helpful and professional. She was a great friend. I will miss her!!
I read today that your beautiful mom had passed. I am so very sorry for your loss, she was an absolute wonderful person. When ever I would see her she always brought me up to date on you and your career. She was so very proud of you. And she would also say to me “I will tell Freddy I saw you”!
May she Rest In God’s Peace.
Katie when you are received in Heaven, please say Hello to Ilo. He always talked so highly of you and I could understand why after I met you and got more acquainted with you. You always looked like you stepped out of a Fashion Magazine since you dressed so beautifully. May you Rest In Peace in the arms of a Loving Jesus Christ. God Bless You and I will miss seeing you out and about.

Kenny, Vicky and Freddy, My deepest condolences to you and your family. Kathy and I worked together at Fashion Bar many years ago but have always remained good friends. She was a huge support and role model to me as a single parent. Her strength, kindness and wisdom were always an inspiration to me. I’m blessed to have had such a wonderful friend. Those Fashion Bar days were some of the best days of my life and I always loved reminiscing with your mom. Kathy will always have a special place in my heart. I will be on work travel so I cannot attend her memorial service. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
