Dear friend and all around a Great person who likes having many friends and always had room for more, would help anyone at all at any time day or nite. Loved and missed by everyone, A cat lover by heart.

Kathy loved to live and she loved the life that she shared with her loving son TC.

She touched the lives of everyone she met with her kindness and her selfless love for her family and friends. She taught us all how to stay positive, to enjoy every moment we have in this life, and to never judge or discriminate. She was always smiling that beautiful smile, it was infectious, and her bright blue eyes could light up a room. Besides being an inspirational mother,friend she was an adventurer, who loved the challenge of trying anything new. Living her life like every day was a gift, she also love cooking.

Taken from this life far too early, she leaves behind a huge hole in our hearts. We miss her so much, but are relieved to know her suffering has ended. Kathy is survived by her only son Tony Cardenas Jr.
