MEDRANO -- Kathy. Perhaps you brought or served food. Perhaps you sent a card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke words as any friends could say; perhaps you were not there at all, just thought or prayed for us through the days. Whatever part the Lord had you play to console our hearts, we thank you so very much and may He bless each of you. Your love, prayers and support was most certainly appreciated by all of us. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for all who made this final farewell for Kathy a great one. Special thanks to the Albuquerque Police Department for providing the escort. Also to the Women's Hospital ICU staff for their genuine caring and kindness. The family of Kathy Medrano. French Mortuary 9300 Golf Course Rd. NW (505) 897-0300
