Kitty and I were best buddies since 1st grade at Wayland. It continued years later in LA to include her awesome husband, Dan.
Thanks for all those fun memories.
Love and condolences. ❤️

To say that she was one of a kind doesn't quite cover it. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.
I still can't believe that she's gone.

My cousin Kitty was a year older than I was and in our childhood I always looked at her as a cool and confident role model. Probably helped me push away my shyness. God bless you Kitty!
