Kathy's Way: Each day is a gift. Live it to the fullest.

Kathy's Way is a brief telling of the way one person can affect many, very many people. My wife of three months less than fifty years was capable of accomplishing the extraordinary. She did so by finding the substance in the simple every day. Her quiet attention to the person, place, and event embraced and elevated those around her.

Kathy's way of doing this was to know the person and let them shine. She did this by participating in their lives, dreams, and goals. What was important to another was important to her. Her story is worth knowing. We can learn from her, and we should learn from her as did I, a way of living that is a way of loving.

Ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
