Aunt Kelly was a warm wonderful woman. I have many childhood memories of times as a child when we went to see her and Uncle Henry in California. And when as a family we would enjoy time together over Momo and Popo’s. Holidays and just weekends together as a family. I always admired the dedication and focus they both shared in raising their children. It is evident in the success they each have themselves, Henry Mark, Dayna and Kerri, that their parents were successful. The greatest gift you give future generations is hope that turns to dreams, that become goals and then achievements. Aunt Kelly was a blessing to all who knew her, and it is evident in the love of those that knew her.

Henry and family, I was so sad to hear of Kathleens passing. We had so many wonderful times when we were younger. I remember all of the picnics at Kennywood Park, we really had fun and looked forward to your visits. I think about you all often and hoped you were doing well. It is a shame we are so many miles apart. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God help you all to find consolation and peace. My Sympathy to all of you.

To my sweet cousins from KC (The KC gang) and to Henry, Kathleen’s son and daughters, my heart goes out to you for your loss. Our visits From the KC gang while growing up were always so much fun and our memories are strong. It was like yesterday that we had picnics at Renzi park and at aunt Thelma’s and aunt Mary’s house. And then Grandma Butko serving homemade soup, cramped in her teeny tiny house with grampa Butko insisting the whole family could ‘fit’. Kathleen’s personality and her confidence in everything she did always amazed us. I know she will be missed by you. We are all feeling your loss.
