Words will never be able to express how much I love and appreciate you and every second I spent with you, Aunt Kathy. From traveling to York for skating competitions, sitting on your couch playing videos games, falling asleep on the couch around 10pm while you and Mom were talking only to wake up at 7am TO STILL FIND YOU BOTH TALKING!, to me getting older and coming to PA to spend weekends with you and Uncle Potato Head by myself, staying up late and watching Baggage and The Golden Girls together, going to Community Aid because we "have to get the good deals", to talking about relationships and friendships or just babbling on about the most random things in general... You always wanted everything in the world for everyone you ever met. You are truly an angel and I know your dancing in heaven reunited with Grandmom right now. I love you and will miss you terribly. <3
