I was sorry to hear of Kathleen's passing.  We worked together at Sarah Todd nursing home.  I have fond memories of our talks and time spent together.  After I moved to Lancaster we talked on the phone and talked of getting together for a visit but because of her health was unable to do so.  I will miss her.  My prayers are with you.  May God heal your grief as only He can.
Hannah Bucher Tran
