  8. My deepest condolences to the Snee Family, William and the children. I will not be attending the services due to earlier commitments, but would like to say a few words.

    I assume the "Moonlight ladies", are the Washington Heights girls, now women.
    Kathleen had a smile and grace that would light up a room, in her case Wadsworth and 191 St. I only remember happy memories as we grew up in Washington Heights. There was no doubt that as a young girl she would be a fabulous woman.
    My mother, Milady Pena, passed away after a 12 year struggle with Alzheimer. The only thing that heals the pain is time, and I hope you all can think of the positive life that Kathleen lived and the joy she brought to all of us.
    In Kathleen's memory lets do all we can to find a cure to this dreadful decease. I know that it is a great loss to all, especially the Washington Heights women who lost part of the team. Be strong and use her life as an example to all.
