“It was always you”

Johnny and Kathy’s love story started July 21, 1974. Throughout their forty-nine years they were inseparable; each other’s everything. Through the highs and lows a love that was so rare it “lassoed the moon”.

For eighteen years Kathy was “the first lady” of Hopewell Baptist Church in Horse Branch along with her husband Pastor John Daugherty. The love for her church was endless. Each and everyone that walked through the door was greeted with a huge hug. She went above and beyond to make sure you felt loved and welcomed. Everyone at Hopewell held a special place in her heart. She truly loved them all. She was the most amazing mother, and she was so proud of her girls and made sure to tell them every day. She made sure to leave no doubt on the love she had for them. Even the girls’ friends became family. Some of her happiest moments were spent surrounded by friends and family playing music and dancing. She thought life couldn’t get any better…until she became a GiGi. She was their favorite toy and best friend. There was nothing she wouldn’t do for them, from make up done with sharpies, crafting for hours, baking or any other fun challenges…she did it all.

The impact she had on our lives will forever live on for she left a Legacy of LOVE. Now these three remain: faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is LOVE.
