To all the members of the Richardson and Bradway families: Margie and I send our heartfelt condolences to all of you on the passing of Kathy. Our lives and families are so entwinned nothing we say will fully express our sadness at Kathy's death, nor the joy we have felt being such good friends for so many years. Engagements, marriages, births, deaths, work and play we have all experienced together with memories that will endure forever, including those still to be made. We have truly shared lives to the fullest. Despite the sadness, our hope is that somehow our collective children will carry on friendships into the future that will bring happiness to all. Unfortunately, age as well as the travails of travel will probably keep the two of us apart from you at the funeral. Know in your hearts that we will be standing nearby recalling lives well lived and enjoyed. May God bless and keep you all.
