To Kathy's family: I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Kathy ( and all of you) fondly from many years ago when I was married to Stephen Sorrentino. We had lots of good times together with Brian and Kathy Hawes. May she rest in peace.

My dear , sweet sister-in-law, more like a sister! You gave so much to your family and friends, such happy times at your Plymouth home parties, the last 25 New Years at the Cove get-togethers, our cruise together, family showers, weddings. You will be sorely missed. We love you, David, Julie, Michael and Jason and all the "grands" and pray that they will hold close the sweet memories of "Mimi". Jenay and Steve Burgess
