    I am shocked and saddened to hear about this! My condolences to Bill and all. Kitty was very friendly to all. She always said hi when I saw her in Walmart and always supported the school and her grandkids at their sporting games.

    She will be missed. The last couple of weeks was hard to see her the way I did and I hated seeing her that way cuz I would remember her always saying hello and asking how I was with a big smile from ear to ear and always telling me about her grandkids Bracken and Kelsen supporting them all the time at their games. Bill I am sorry for your loss just know that all of us at IHC are with you and your family in our thoughts and prayers….
