I am so very sorry for your loss! Please find comfort from a scripture I'm sure you have read several times before but is personal to you now.
"And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4) Jw.org

To the family of Kathy Christopher: My heartfelt sympathy to your family. I see her awesome smile that will be missed in our early service at Holy Trinity. When Kathy and Don came to our Church it was an instant bonding that we had. I will miss her dearly. Kathy is a beautiful lady inside and out. Thank you for being in my life.

Mr. Christopher, Donna, and Family,
My heart breaks for you all. Feeling your loss as Mrs. Christopher was one of my childhood "moms." So happy you all have the best memories of a life lived well. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
