Kathy had the biggest heart and the most contagious smile. She cherished going on walks and bird watching. She owned many different birds throughout her life and even rehabbed a wood duck. She loved the beach and going on vacations. She particularly enjoyed the Mexico sun, warm breeze, and the sound of the ocean. Kathy loved and enjoyed music, singing karaoke every chance she got.
