Dear Kathleen's Family, I know that you will miss her physically, I miss my Dad as well. But it is my belief that we are spiritual beings having a human experience, and they are with us non physically, loving us, interested in what we are doing, assisting us, etc. And they are happy and free of all doubt, worry, anger, etc. (My Dad is lovingly and happily around us.) And we will be together again. We and love are eternal. What a full life Kathleen had! And us kids were so blessed with these great families! :) My love to you all. And BIG hugs, Julie (Wehmeyer Wentz), Rick and Sarah
