Tribute to Kathleen Kirlin

To the passing of a (a tribute):

Dear High School Alumni friend of mine, Kathleen Kirlin
(Died, age 68, 2015): from the Yearbooks, 1964 & 1965, she writes:

“Chick, congratulations on getting that award
…you really deserved it. It sure has been nice seeing you in the halls always getting that smile & ‘Hi’. Luck to you always & the best to you as you deserve it.    
Luck, Kathy Kirlin, 1965

“Chick, to a swell guy. The best of luck to you in everything you do.
Have fun this summer & always keep smiling (sure looks good).
God bless you. Love & luck. Kathy Kirlin,’ 1964

From the Heart, know this: Like a great flood, death carries away a sleeping or awaken village Like to like: hence, seized by the End-Maker, there is no protection. Thus, knowing this fact should make clear right quickly, the path leading to peace with God. And so I had always felt with Ms. Kathleen Kirlin, during those far-off days of my High School years, she always knew this Long before I discovered it. My prayers are with her.  …
