After two years of searching and wondering what happened to Kathy Goble, those who loved her now have answers. And they're coming together to remember the mother, friend and co-worker, and say their final goodbyes.
"I think we all wanted to think that she was off at a beach somewhere and happy and smiling. But all of this came as such a blow to all of us. Definitely devastating," said family friend, Jacqueline Bevan.
But two years and one day after one day after she disappeared after leaving work at Kelley's Mens Shop in Charleston, news came that no one wanted to hear.
Police found Goble's remains in the front yard of one of her co-worker's, Charles March.
Police say she had been strangled, dismembered, and then buried. March is now charged in her murder and a motive hasn't been released. but her family and friends aren't dwelling on the way she died. They're remembering Kathy for the way she lived.
"If we can help at least one child or family in her honor, I think we've done something," said family friend, Billy Herrald.
Hundreds of people came out to Calvary Baptist Church in Charleston for a memorial service on Saturday morning. But instead of flowers, Goble's family and friends have started a fund in her name called The Kathy Goble Trust.
It's goal is to benefit women and children who have been victims of domestic violence. Goble's friends say its something she would be proud of.
"Little children, she loved them. She always loved my son and I always saw her with little kids so I know she's going to be looking down and she'll be happy that they're starting this fund to help them," said Bevan.
Loved ones still hoping Kathy's memory will live on. A life they're finally getting to remember two years later.
"It's not going to be closure until the trial is over. But it's definitely closure enough for us to say goodbye," said Bevan.
