I had so much fun with Kathy at the 20 year reunion in '86 ... We danced all night long! She was one of the most fun loving people ever... so full of life ... with a smile that was contagious. Miss her.

Very sweet comment, Bonnie!  I loved her spirit and strangely enough, she lived not far from me in Smyrna and I frequently saw her.  Her daughter, Karrie, was in the same Campbell High School of Smyrna class as my daughter, Deidre.  Karrie and Deidre have always been close friends and remain close.  I see Karrie frequently when she and Richard bring the girls down here to Disney. Karrie would love to hear from you on Facebook......Karrie Knight Johnson.  She loves hearing from her mother's friends.

One of my dearest friends!   We had SOOO many great times together.  We pretty much stayed on her Dad's uh-oh list, but he was always so sweet and funny that we didn't mind being on restriction as long as he was around.  I miss her every time I think of high school days.   Beautiful person, inside and out!

Kathy was one of those individuals who walked in the room and immediately made everyone smile. She had an infectious glow about her. Ironically, several years after we graduated she lived in the same apartment complex as my sister, Linet('63). They became good friends and their children played together.  Kathy will always be in our hearts and surely missed.

Kathy was one of the first people I met when we moved to SW Atlanta.  She was my back-yard neighbor.  We played together then.  I remember one year I got a perm and she got a very short hair-cut.  I don't think either of us liked our dos very much.  She laughed and called mine the "eggbeater" and hers the "stringbean".  Of course, Allen was always there to agree or scold.  I know he loved Kathy so much.  She is another one that enjoyed life and should be celebrating with us on the 23rd.

Kathy was just such a sweet, pretty, fun person!  Her daughter Karrie is just like her and her son Alex is so handsome.  Kathy was my hairdresser for years, lots of times I would try to cut or color my own hair, and I would call her with  a 'distress call for repair'!  She would scold me, then fix it, after we had many good laughs at my green,or orange, or once purple hair!  She and I shared some great laughs, and sometimes tears....she and my husband, Allen, were also friends, of which I did not know when I met him, but out one night for drinks and he goes up and gives her a big kiss and I'm like YOU know Kathy and we all three got a good laugh out of the "it's a small world"!  I was at her wedding and she was so happy and enjoying life again, and then I get the call that she has cancer and not doing well, so my last visit was so sad, but she still had her beautiful smile and as always a big hug.  I think of her often and always just think that it was a life taken far too young.
