    Dear Lang Family, I am so sorry to hear of Kathy's passing. Please accept my deepest and sincerest sympathy. I used to bowl with both your mom and your dad. They were both very kind people. I enjoyed knowing and bowing with them. My late husband, Tom, also enjoyed them and some of you when you would come and bowl with them and us. May she have everlasting peace. Take care and God Bless.

    To my cousins, you have my deepestest sympathy on the loss of your mother. I have such fond memories of Aunt Kathy. She was always so genuinely warmhearted. Her delicious homemade pies and cookies were the best.
