Such a perfect example of grace and kindness. Kathy was always a calming presence and she will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to Richard for I know how much he will miss her. May she rest peacefully ... God Bless

Kathy was a great therapist, humanist and one of the strongest women I've ever known. Heartfelt condolences to her husband, Richard, and loved ones. I will always hold a good thought for Kathy. Thank you.

Kathy and I were an inseparable pair at Arlington Jr. High. Our fathers worked together and after their Friday golf game there was either a dinner at the Sullivan's or a trip to Nick Benny's family restaurant. We were an extended family, she addressing my parents as Uncle Ray and Aunt Kay and I hers, as Uncle Time and Aunt Trudy. I was able to visit Kathy and Rich twice at their beautiful home in Newton. We shared many stories of our youthful escapades. She was my friend, my "sister" and I loved her. I am blessed she was a part of my life.

Dr. Kathleen Hartnett was truly a kind and patient person. Her intelligence and quiet sense of humor were so much a part of her. She helped me through the grief of my Mom, Dad and Husband. I will always remember her smile and the amazing support she gave me through the years. She and her family are in my thoughts and prayers. Dr. Kathleen Hartnett will always remain in my heart.
