Kathleen Kirkwood passed away after a short illness. A tireless worker, a wonderful sister and daughter, a passionate dog mom, and a most beautiful friend, Kathleen loved her Starbucks cappuccino and brainstorming different business ideas. Her mind never stopped noodling how to create clever new items, and how to make a difference in the world. We shared 1000 laughs on-air and off. Too young, gone too soon. Rest in peace dear friend, and your friends will keep your light shining bright in your memory.”
