  1. Dear Ryan Family, I loved Aunt Katherine very much! She always made me feel (in the endless sea of our cousins) special. Jennifer Morrison Martin (Jeanne Ryan Morrison’s daughter)

  2. Dear Ryan family: I am sorry I did not have the chance to greet you after the services. I just want to let you know that although I did not see your mother often, she always made me smile and brightened my day every time I saw her. There was just something about her kindness, decency, personal attention and sunny outlook in life that made us feel like we were all her best friend. I will miss her. Kitty, thanks for letting us know so I could be there today to honor her memory. God bless you and your family. May your wonderful memories of her sustain you during this painful time. George & Pam King

  3. I realize this is late but I just read of Marty Baum’s passing and I saw dear Kat passed last year. I met her years ago in Marty’s office. My late husband worked with Marty and I often chatted with your Mum. What a sense of style!! A great lady! I’ll remember always.
