Aunt Kitty was the sweetest woman ever. She didn't take any sh*t and loved her family very much. She also was a great cook and did it wIth love. I HAVE SO MANY great memories of her and stories I will cherish forever. How many kids can call the operator or directory assistance and get to say hi to their Aunt? Not many but I could! She was always a great Aunt to me and I will miss her to pieces. I am comforted by the fact she is no longer suffering and can walk hand in hand with uncle Norm again. See you on the other side Aunt Kitty Kat we will miss your beautiful smile....wonderful voice and laugh ....and most of all your love. Kiss Grandma Cullen for me and I will keep an eye on Kelly for you I promise.

Love you always,
Malea Michelle (Barnard)

Kelly....I hope you're holding up okay...I know this is tough and I'm so sorry....I''m also very very sorry that Eddie and I can't make it to the visitation tonight or the funeral tomorrow....I think you said the number of people who can attend is limited.....i;m sure there are others who it woiuld be more important to your Mom to be there but also, I'm having a procedure tomorrow and am prepping tonight and will be at NKC Hospital tomorrow....I love you Kelly/1 I love your mom too. I felt SO good that she remembered me at the first birthday party Eddie and I attended. I have the picture still and I treasure it! Your mom was so much fun, so sweet, had such a great personality, and she was so full of life! I'm honored that I got to know her!
