  • My children and I offer our sincerest condolences to Neal, Michelle, Joey and family. Kathy had a heart of gold and was well loved and always fondly remembered by myself and my boys Jesse and Micah. She had an amazingly strong spirit. We were blessed to have her as part of our lives, even if it was for a short period. - Posted by: Megan Ludlow (Friend ) on: Jun 29, 2021

  • Our friend Kathy was such a special person, loving, warm, kind and full of compassion, Kathy always welcomed us into her home with love, hot meal and hugs. May her family be comforted by the Lord’s love and hope. In our prayers, love and hugs your friends, The Reverend Scott & Kathleen Pruden. Isaiah 40:31 NIV But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. - Posted by: Reverend Scott & Kathleen Pruden (Friends) on: Jun 19, 2021

  • Dear Neal & family, such a great loss to you all. Hope that time & warm memories will ease your sorrow & pain. Growing up we spent such good times together, Christmas dinners, the beach in summer. Kathy & I even shared many birthday cakes together as our birthdays were 1 day apart. Sincerest & deepest condolences to you all. Kathy was loved by all who knew her & will be sorely missed. Love, cousin Sandy - Posted by: Sandy Bellabono (Cousin) on: Jun 19, 2021

  • I met Kathy 34 years ago after the birth of my second child, Charlie, as I struggled with the difficult decision to return to work with 2 small children. Kathy took on the care of my young baby and stood by my daughter Hailie as the kindergarten bus arrived. Living just down the street, my children suddenly had a brother and sister in Joey and Michelle, and spent many years as part of the Lapiere family. Sincere condolences to Neil and kids as we learn of this devastating news. Kathy will long be remembered as an treasured and caring person in my children’s lives. - Posted by: Diane Olivier (Friend ) on: Jun 19, 2021
