She will truly be missed by everyone. Even though we are all grieving, we need to think... She is having a party right now in heaven with all of her old friends. We all know she was a party girl and loved to have a good time and dance. She's dancing now, and living it up. We love you grandma, whole bushie full...

Dear Family,
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Many times I would visit Ms. Stillwell and we would read Bible scriptures together out on the front deck. During these time she would express how much she loved and missed your father so I would share comforting thoughts such as Jesus words at John 5: 28, 29. She also really loved her little dog and would tell me funny stories about different things her little dog would do such as looking at your father's picture and barking as if to say come on let's play. May the wonderful memories of your parents comfort you during this time as well as Bible texts like Psalm 34:18.

I remember as a young teenager dating her beautiful grand daughter (Kala), Not many people approved of us dating or talking period but she and Don were the only two people who were always by our side and helped us keep seeing each other. They had a love like no other.. I remember one New Years I spent down at their house with Kala and her and Kala were watching the ball drop while I spent time in the middle room with Don where he was always sitting in his chair.. She came in the room right after the ball dropped and kissed him.. It was beautiful, After so many years being together you could just tell the spark had never left and they were still in love. Now they are reunited in heaven, and ion my mind and my heart and I'm sure Kala, Don Jr, Kelly, and the rest of the family could agree. Kathryn wouldnt have it any other way than to be reunited with the love of her life in the loving arms of god. I know theres a rough past between me and the family but Kathryn and I just talked less than 7 months ago and I did tell her what she meant to me and that I did love her and still do.. She did so much for me. I hope we can all get past our differences and I wish you all the best in this time of grief.. Rest in Peace beautiful Kathryn, you will never be forgotten.
