  7. I only came to know Kathy as a fellow member of the Montgomery Township Historical Society little more than a year ago, however, within that brief period of time, I was privileged to meet Kathy, as well as her husband Richard, and her daughter. From day one, Kathy proved to me that she was capable of handling any detail-oriented project regardless of how large it was. A dedicated researcher, Kathy never left any stone unturned. She was an asset to the MTHS as well as the many other walks of life in which she served. She will indeed be dearly missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with the Sands family and friends in this time of sorrow.

  8. Lindamarie and family, You have my deepest condolences. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
