So sorry to hear of Kathy's passing. Having spent a lot of time at the Johnson house growing up with Amy, I always got a kick out of Kathy. She never minded us hanging out in her kitchen and making pepperoni pizza every time I was there. I still laugh at the time we went to the DQ drive-through and Kathy ordered me an "Oriental" blizzard instead of Oreo! My sympathies to the Johnson and Rassel families. Audrey Bollin
