Dear Glenn and the entire family, I will always have you in my thoughts and my heart! Kathy was truly a blessing and will be forever. I knew her since second grade. She was always there for me and me for her. I will never forget our trips our visits the multitude of things we did from childhood thru our adult years. Even when I left Lancaster, we always kept in touch, and saw or spoke to each other. Kathy will always be with all of us and she was always a happy, loving, strong person.

Love, Sharon Forte D’Aquino

Condolence from Deborah Strubel on August 14th, 2021 8:05 am

Dear Glen and daughters, Ken and I are so sorry for your loss of Kathy. She and I spent many lunchtimes together when we both worked for the Jay Group in Ronks, playing cards and shopping at the farm market. We will never forgot your hospitality, fun, and spirit of adventure on New Year Eve.. I left your house early one year, and went into labor with our son the next day. We will always remember you and Kathy so fondly. May God put his comforting arms around you so you feel his presence throughout the next weeks and months and years.
Love and hugs,
Deb and Ken Strubel

Condolence from Phillipp Muth on August 14th, 2021 3:23 pm

Glenn & family: Sorry for your loss. Thank you for calling me last night. Though we haven’t seen each other in a long while it has been nice to catch up on the phone & plan on getting together. Here is a fond memory. When we played football in the park, back in the day, Kathy took many pictures. Many years ago I put a frame together with quite a few of them. I see them every day when i walk into the room where they hang on the wall. Keep Kathy in your heart & your mind & she will always be with you. And we will take that walk. Sincerely: Phillipp Muth
