    Dear Darren, Colleen, Darla, and other family members, I was sorry to read about Kitty's passing. She was a wonderful woman and always valued and appreciated each one of you. Although I have not had much contact with her in the last 17 years, I have many wonderful memories of time with her and Denny. She was so proud of her family and all of your accomplishments! I am sorry that my health issues prevented me from expressing my sympathy in person at her service. Sincerely, Ann Dively Dear Darren, Colleen, Darla and other family members, I am sorry Kitty was taken from you all.
