Dear Marty and family members,
I was so heart broken to read this obituary, not the one I thought I'd see, as I was looking for my stepmother's obituary.
All I can say is a prayer for you all, and tell you that Kathy reached out to me when she married Marty via, Facebook. She was so wonderful to speak with and welcomed me to her loving home if, I should return to Kokomo. She told me of the love that she shared with Marty, and how truly in love they were. Marty and I have known each other since I was 15 years old. We are like brother and sister, and I can't begin to tell everyone how special Marty is as a man, and how he searched for a true love like Kathy. She was taken away far too
... young, and Marty, she passed to the other side on Valentine's Day. She waited until that special day just for you. That is true love. Even though they pass they will always remain with you, by your side and help you anyway they can. Listen to your inner voice and hear her. I'm so glad that you both had such a wonderful life together, God seems to save the best for last. May you know that she suffers not, and loves all of you and even strangers. I'm sorry that I never made it back to share in hospitality and friendship.
What a beautiful spirit of life, love and laughter she had. My deepest condolences to you Marty, and Kathy's family. God Bless and keep you all safe and love one another and hold onto what Kathy held so dear, all of you!
