My  Deepest Sympathy to Kathryn's family. 
 Kathryn and I graduated together in the class of 1944. 
 The last time I saw Kathryn was at our 60th class reunion as
 I live near Pittsburgh.

Karen and all your family,

This heartfelt thought is sent to say how sorry we all are at the passing of your mother.

I can't make any of the services because of my work schedule but know that we know how special Kate was.  My mother Esther Wert fondly remembers your mother.

Sending love and best wishes....
