Dearest Kitty...Please forgive me for not calling you. I meant to but was on a trip to South West USA and just got home last night. I just got word that you passed away. Damn that Cancer. You were and are such a wonderful soul and I know you are in the Lords loving Arms and care now. You suffered so much and you faced death more bravely than anyone I have ever met. I will always love you and so many of us here considered you our family. You always called me Northern Light (NL) and I called you the Nicest Nebraskan (NN) and we meant it with all of our hearts. God Bless You for ETERNITY. Love, Laura P.S. I hope the Lord will let you hear these words. xoxoxo #11250897

Dear Kitty.....I too had the chance to meet you and several others at the shoot in Kansas. You also came to see me in Missouri and stay over to go shooting. You loved to travel.....We all love you and wish you peace. God speed, my friend. Fly high. Hugs to you and your family. XXOXOX #11251011
