Katie was a wonderful person inside and out. I thoroughly enjoyed the many years we worked together. She spoke often of her loving family. She cherished each and everyone of you. Praying for all of you.

Mommy, this doesn’t feel real. It can’t be. I’m so blessed that God chose you to be my mom. You were the worlds very best mom. You were also my very best friend. You could breath life and hope into any situation. Gosh, I wish you were here to do that now. You and Jesus have gotten me through some very difficult times in my life and I know you’ll both continue to do so. I just wish you were here to hold me and tell me that the oxygen will return to my lungs and that we will all be ok. I wish I could see you again. Talk to you again. I wish I had made it back in time to talk to you, but I have peace that you knew how much I loved you and I for sure know how much you loved me. Thank you for being my angel on this earth. I can’t wait to see you again in heaven someday. I know you are in a giant mansion made of gold right now and I’m so thankful that you are back with your momma and sister and brother. I love you, mom.
