We are sharing with deepest regret and sadness that Kathy Mattox has passed away. As some of you know, Kathy fought cancer for over a year. Her battle with it was fierce and yet cancer overcame her. We miss her tremendously, along with her smile, her laughter and seeing how she cared for each of her clients.
As we move on without her, the loss will be felt by many. We wish to assure you that her dedication to serving families will continue through our office.
If you would like to express your condolences to her family, you may send them to The Art of Family, 169 Cedar Road, Vista, CA 92083
