    I was so saddened to hear this news today. Kathy and I have been friends for the past few years as we both have a passion for the flea market business and depression glass. I stopped at her shop in Oakland one day just to check it out and we have been good friends ever since. We spoke often and I helped her moved quite a few of her things in the Sioux City area. She will be greatly missed. My heartfelt condolences to her family and other friends. I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

    A piece of my heart left me today when I heard the news. I know we had never met in person but meeting you on your online sales in Facebook we became friends. I knew how much you worried about your mom and your brother Bruce and all the work you did in your shops. RIP my friend and fly high. You truly earned those wings. I love you my friend and I will miss you
