Faron, Misty and Family - We're so sorry to hear about your loss. I remember Kathy fondly from the Kelloggsville days, and years later we ended up running into each other at a tribal meeting between LRB and GTB and it was great to meet and talk and catch up on things. On behalf of the Dudley family my mom, Elsie Dudley, and I want to express our deepest sympathy. - Ruth
