Dear Hnat Family -
I am just now finding out about Kathleen's passing. She was a very brave soul who had obviously created, and earned, a tremendous amount of love in her life. As sad as her situation could seem, it was a privilege to share a few moments with her in the acupuncture room as she battled for a miracle. What a fighter! I was, and remain, in awe.
That also goes for Drew, whose dedication was a sight to see.
Wishing peace and love to Kathleen and all of you.
Josh Zimmer, ap/dom
My sincere condolences to the Hnat family. May your prayers to the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort (Ps. 83:18) sustain your family during this most difficult time. Continue to share the love and support each other now and in the days ahead.
My condolences goes out to the family. I am truly sorry for the loss of your loved one but, please take comfort in knowing that God knows exactly how you feel so much so that he plans to take away all things that cause mankind pain. " ...will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more..." —Revelation 21:4 We can full assurance that this promise is sure to come because ''God....cannot lie" —Titus 1:2
Kathleen was such a lovely human being. An example of love and perseverance. This heavenly Angel will be missed by so many here on earth. Love and condolences to all her beloved family.
Kathy will be missed by so many because she loved by so many. Sending prayers and love to your family.
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Kathy. She was an amazing women and such a caring and loving wife and mother. I admired and respected Kathy so much. She was always an inspiration to me as a woman, wife and mother. Thinking of all of you. I had hoped in our lifetimes, brain cancer would be cured. It took my dad from me when he was in his late 40's and I was in my early 20's. I will continue to support the cause.
Kathy was such a bright, strong and inspirational woman. She had such a positive and energetic energy that touched every person who had the wonderful experience of getting to know her. She will be missed dearly.
So very sorry for your loss Hnat family. IT was so nice to see you all rallying around Kathy and being together as a family during her cancer battle. You are a blessed family to have each other. From our family to yours sending prayers and love.from Carrie, Richie, Kalei, Kristina, Corey and Andrew.
My deepest sympathies to you and your family Drew. May your fond memories with Kathy bring you comfort and peace in this difficult time.
We are all saddened by the loss of Kathy. What fond memories we have of a care-free youth playing games, sledding at King’s Estate, going to HS games and parties, and so much more. From all the Fridays, we send our warmest condolences to all the O’Tooles. May Kathy’s ever smiling face continue to shine through all she touched. And may perpetual light also shine upon her.
My love and prayers to all of you. Kathy was room mom for my class at Dr. Phillips Elementary. She was the kindest, most generous and giving soul ever. I am so happy our paths crossed.
Dear Hnat and Otoole family. Kathy was a great Friend and a wonderful person. I have wonderful memories from cheerleading squad 6th, 7 th and 8 th grades, to high school to working together at Federated. My heart goes out to her family. She was a treasure that will surely be missed. Love Carol Donahue Moore
My prayers are with you Drew and your family. Please know that your community will be here to hold you up when you return.
Kathy’s love will always be with you in your hearts and you will one day be reunited.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Drew and all Kathy’s family and friends.
Drew, Jason, Caitlyn & Corey:
Rick & I are so sorry for your loss. We will always remember Kathy as a strong woman who lived life to the fullest & loved her family tremendously! We are truly blessed to have known her. You are in our prayers as you grieve her passing. Our door is always open, so when you are in Orlando, please stop by. May God hold you in his arms and comfort you.
I was privileged to call Kathy my good friend for over 15 years. We meet when my son played soccer with Corey. Kathy was that rare lady that made those around her better people. As neighbors Kathy and I saw each other several times a week as we shared the triumphs and trials of raising teenagers. Kathy’s wisdom and expertise as a mom were an inspiration and encouragement to me. She and Drew raised three awesome kids! Kathy was definitely the heart of their home. One highlight for my family will always be our trip to Europe in the summer of 2008. Kathy always faced life’s challenges through her filter of strong faith. Kathy’s sweet spirit will be missed although I know I will see my dear friend again one day....
Drew, Jason, Kaitlyn and Corey.... I am so sad and my heart breaks for you all. I’m so thankful that I got to visit with Kathy last fall as they visited Charlotte. What a very special lady she was. I do have lots of memories of Kathy bringing you kids by your dads office when I worked for him.
But most of all, I have a “throw” that Kathy gave me about 25 years ago that she cross stitched on and I keep it out, so this morning , I shed a tear as i saw it and thought of Kathy. What a keepsake I have.
Love and prayers to all.
RIP Sweet Kathy!!
As a lifelong friend of Kathy's husband, going back 50 years, I met Kathy but a few times. When I did, it was evident that my buddy and his wife raised an awesome family and she and Drew complemented one another well in marriage.
My heartfelt condolences to family and friends. It's obvious that Kathy's life was well-lived, as a wife, mother and event planner. She made ESPN and related shows look good! A big-time shout out to her and the family for bringing light to the plight of brain cancer-related disease.
Rest in Peace Kathy. Arizona Love from "Klein-Hands" (aka "The Encourager")
Our acquaintance was brief and ended too soon. To Drew and Kaitlin, with whom I’ve enjoyed sports and our family celebration, my heart goes out to you.
