I am so saddened to hear about Aunt Kathyrn passing. I have nothing but the fondest memories of her growing up. When my own mom passed, she gave me the most comforting words. Though I have not spent much time with her my adult life, her kindness will be greatly missed. I am so sorry. This day has come too soon.

My deepest condolences to all of the Goughs. Mrs. Gough was such a huge part of my growing up in Meridian, from being the mom of my friend Suzanne in elementary school, to being the face of St. Patrick's all those years as secretary, to being the welcoming face at Mass whenever I came home to visit. I will miss her. May the Lord Jesus enfold her in His Most Compassionate Heart of Divine Mercy.
