Kitten was born in Michigan June 4, 1939. She is survived by her sons James Rosendahl, and Jon Starbird, her grand daughter Kathryn Ross, her great grand children Haley and Wyatt Ross and her sister Rosemary Hicks.

 

Kitten asked that the following words be given with her obituary:

 

To my dearest family

 

some things I'd like to say 

 

but first of all to let you know 

 

That I arrived O.K.

 

 

 

I'm writing this from Heaven

 

Where I dwell with God above,

 

where there's no more tears or sadness

 

there is just eternal love

 

 

 

Please do not be unhappy

 

Just because I'm out of sight

 

Remeber that I'm with you

 

Every morning, noon and night

 

 

 

That day I had to leave you

 

When my life on Earth was through

 

God picked me up and hugged mean

 

and he said I welcome you.

 

 

 

It's good to have you back again

 

You were missed while you were gone,

 

as for your dearest family

 

they'll be here later on

 

 

 

I need you here so badly

 

as part of my big plan,

 

there's so much that we have to do

 

to help our mortal man.

 

 

 

Then God gave me a list of things

 

He wished for me to do

 

and foremost on that list of mine

 

is to watch and care for you

 

 

 

And I will be beside you

 

Every day, week and year

 

and when your sad I'm standying here

 

to wipe away the tears.

 

 

 

And when you lie in bed at night

 

the day chores put to flight,

 

God and I are closer to you

 

in the middle of the night.

 

 

 

When you think of my life on earth and

 

all those living years

 

because you're only human

 

they are bound to bring you tears

 

 

 

But do not be afraid to cry

 

it does relieve the pain

 

remember therfe would be no flowers

 

unless there was some rain.

 

 

 

I wish that I could tell you

 

Of all that God has planned,

 

but if I were to tell you,

 

you wouldn't understand.

 

 

 

But one thing is for certain

 

thought my life on earth is over,

 

I am closer to you now

 

than I ever was before.

 

 

 

And to my very many friends

 

trust God knows what is best

 

I'm still not far away from you

 

I'm just beyond the crest.

 

 

 

There are rock roads ahead of you

 

and many hills to climb

 

but together we can do it,

 

taking one day at a time.

 

 

 

I was alwasys my philosophy

 

and I'd like it for you too,

 

that as you give unto the world

 

so the world will give to you.

 

 

 

If you can help somebody

 

who's in sorrow or in pain,

 

then you can say to God at night

 

my day was not in vain.

 

 

 

And now I' am contented

 

That my life it was worthwhile,

 

knowing as I passed along the way

 

I made somebody smile.

 

 

 

But if you meet somebody

 

who is down and feeling low,

 

just lend a hand to pick them up

 

as on your way you go.

 

 

 

When you are walking down the street

 

and you've go me on your mind,

 

I'm walking in your footsteps

 

only half a step behind.

 

 

 

And when you feel a gentle breeze

 

or the wind upon your face,

 

that's me giving you a great big hug

 

or just a soft embrace.

 

 

 

And when it's time for you to go

 

from that body to be free,

 

remember that you are not going

 

you are coming here to me.

 

 

 

And I will always love you

 

from that land way up above,

 

we will be in touch again soon.

 

P.S. God sends His love.
