Andrea, Darlene, Cheryl, and families, Extending our deepest sympathy. Kit was inspiration to all who knew her. Praying that you all find peace and joy in her memories and laughter in her stories.
Fred and Family,
Sorry for your loss. Sounds like she lived a long and fulfilling life.
Dear Andrea and Family: I am so saddened to hear the passing of Kit. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. The Comfort Blanket Ladies will miss her terribly, but I know she is at peace in Heaven with your Dad. Love and Blessings to all of you.
So happy to have had Kit as a personal friend for so long. Loved talking to her on the phone when she’d call to check up on me. She was always so classy looking and just a real Lady!
I’ll miss seeing you and our talks, Kit. Thank you for your friendship!
Andrea and family, we are saddened to hear of Kit’s passing. She was such a kind and gentle soul. She lived with an Invincible Spirit and she held the dubious honor of being our band’s oldest fan! We are glad that she is reunited with your dad tonight. Peace
I’m going to miss Kit’s laughter; stories; sharing Monte Cello’s MB casserole and orange candy slices; watching Hallmark Movies & Penguin & Pirate games & game shows; shopping at Talbots; hearing about all the designers on QVC; and on and on!
What a wonderful life she lived!
Kit,is one of my dearest and cherished friends.I will certainly miss her greatly.
Andrea, Mike and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about Kit’s passing. She rode to Living Stations with me many times and I always enjoyed talking with her. She touched the lives of many people with her beautiful smile and generous spirit.
