Dear family,

A beautiful soul has departed to move on to another realm. Her earthly life has been a testimony that You are as young as you feel. I love and admire Aunt Katie and will smile every time I think of her. A strikingly beautiful, tall, strong, well dressed and groomed woman. Her love for family and others was unmatched! My Aunt Katie... I will miss our long talks and visits. Don, Al, Janie and Wayne, please take comfort in knowing that you took great care of your Mother. May God continue to bless you and keep you. All my love.
