I'm so shocked and heart broken to hear such news! My friend, neighbor Kathy Watts was a great friend. Kathy lived across the street from me in Daleville, Al. I would help her out at her house, cut her grass and anything else I could do to help her. Leaving this earth at such a young age, I guess "know" the Lord needed her to come home. Such a great loss to family and friends afar. I'll always remember her. A true Christian women who put the Lord first.

To Kathy’s children and all the family I offer my sincere condolences. and intercessory prayers. Without a doubt she is celebrating being in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I worked with Kathy at Windham as a Linchroom cashier and server.
I can honestly say she was one of the kindest ladies I have ever known. It was easy to see her love of Jesus coming from within and she displayed it for everyone to see. I will never forget her love of the children all over the school and she always displayed her love of her family as well. I can almost hear her saying as we would meet each other each day ,Hood morning Ms Reba. And with a lovely smile. May the peace of our Heavenly Fa
...ther shine upon you all and just know that she was very loved. and will be forever. Kathy I’ll join you in Heaven when God calls me home.
Much love to all.
Ms Reba.

I offer my prayers and sympathy to the family of this sweet and caring mother and grandmother and friend. She was an angel on earth and will be missed greatly! We visited the most when I used to deliver Avon products to her. We were all so busy with kids and I knew that was the best part of her life. Jessica and josh, my heart is sad for you but I know that you know God’s promise and can be joyful knowing that her life was blessed as she was a blessing to others.
