    Fly me up to where you are
    Beyond the distant star
    I wish upon tonight
    To see you smile
    If only for awhile to know you’re there
    A breath away not far
    To where you are
    -Richard Marx

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Kathy was a great friend who taught me many things. In High School her family, shared the shopping secrets of Flint and dealt with her and my new fondness of Richard Marx during our travels. I have many great memories to share.
