Kathi and I dated off and on throughout high school and college. She was my first love.  Before we graduated, we took some time off together and backpacked, hitchhiked and caught many trains throughout Europe.

  We hooked up in Luxembourg and I remember getting off the plane and seeing her at the airport. Some of the memories I have with her was spending a week or so on the island of Mykonos in Greece, running around with no clothes and sleeping in the sand.  We spent time in Rome where the Italian men keep pinching her on her butt and all she did was laugh about it.  I can still see her smile.  We made it to Portugal and spent many days on the Algarve and after that, we headed all over Spain. While in Pamplona we did the "Running of the Bulls" festival together, then on to other great cities throughout Europe. All together, I think we spent eight weeks in Europe.  She was great to travel with. Real easy going and up for anything.

After we graduated from college, she settled down near Ft. Lauderdale and I moved to Hawaii. I flew a couple of times to Florida to spend the weekend with her and enjoy her beauty. I never saw her again after she got married and when I heard she had passed on from breast cancer at an early age, I was deeply saddened.  She had a beautiful spirit, a wonderful smile, very few inhibitions and easy to be with. I love you Kathi and still miss you.
