40 years ago I met Kathy - the first day of 1st grade. She didn't talk in classes but would holler with the best of us on the playground. We'd have sleepovers at my house and in summers, my mom would make us sleep outside in a tent because we were so noisy. When we were 16, we made a cassette tape of us singing silly songs - and I still have that cassette. I accidentally recorded over a few minutes of it several years ago...but this tape is hysterically funny. I still have the 1st Christmas gift she ever gave me (we were in 1st or 2nd grade). It was a little elf/gnome type thing. We were pretty much inseparable throughout school, through graduation. She was the best friend anyone could ever ask for. She even came to court with me when I got divorced from my 1st husband. Even though we'd lost touch in recent years, I still consider her the best friend I've ever had.
I'm so sorry for your loss. Kathy was like beacon of light in a world of (sometimes) darkness.
You have my deepest condolences for your loss of Kathy. Death is truly an enemy to all of us and when we lose someone so young it can be so painful and seem so meaningless. Our loving heavenly father Jehovah knows the pain that we are in and has promised to bring us comfort. The Bible Book of Revelation in chapter 21 and verses 3 and 4, holds out a beautiful Prospect for seeing our loved ones again in the near future.

Unfortunately it has been many, many years since I have been in Wisconsin. My most favorite memory of Kathy was as a child. She didn’t have much to say but always wore that beautiful smile of hers. Keep smiling beautiful lady your life has just begun. Tina Paff Goodson
