    My thoughts and prayers are with you. We have shared so much since we met back in 89 when Dori and Kathy became roommates at St. Mike’s. There began our lifelong memories and love for Miss Kathy. Kathy will be forever in our hearts. Our second daughter and Dori’s sister.

    Love and prayers to all.

    Rick and Dori
