  18. Still in shock you have gone Kathy, even though it was a battle you could not win. The times we caught up over the years were always full of laughter and you were such a wise, kind and fun lady, who deeply cared about everyone. Over the weekend I re-watched you singing “Delta Dawn” on dad’s 80th video and thought how apt it was – you are probably having a drink and a laugh with Helen Reddy right now. Sending all my love to you Terry, Tracey, Scott and Judy. My thoughts are with you. xxxxxxx

    I know she will be by her family’s side and remain very much a part of their very being, until they can meet again.
    Much love and strength to all the family, love Amanda, Trent, Tyson, Keenan, Harrison, Devlan, Ashton and Ruby Abbott xx
    May you rest gently Kathy x
