Rest in Peace

My coworker and friend, Kathleen Gierhart, slipped away early yesterday evening. She'd fought a brain tumor since last summer and found out two weeks ago that her battle was lost. I last saw her an hour before she passed and take comfort in knowing she went peacefully.

I knew her for 10 years. Kathy was a friend and caregiver to everyone, always ready with a hug, or funny story, or a homemade goodie of some kind. She took good care of us at Head Start, loving when the kids called her "Kaffy". She so enjoyed renovating whatever home she and Russell were living in, making it a warm and welcoming place to visit. Even so, she never stayed home! They were always gone visiting family or friends on the weekends, having fun and making wonderful memories.

Rest well, my friend. May the loving arms of our Lord wrap around you and keep you in peace until we meet again.
