  • We first met Katie in February of 1996. We adored her so much, my children loved her so much! My youngest and her bonded so much while we were neighbors! He’d play little pranks on her and she played along with him! Makes me laugh to this day. I got the pleasure of talking to her just before Easter. Such a blessing. Thank you Faye!
    We are so going to miss you but your memories hold dear in our hearts! You have blessed so many!
    We love you!

  • Growing up in Ohio with Kate and her family is a memory I’ll retain forever either in this world or the one hereafter. My cousins and myself were often into mischief as kids are at times and it’s theses memories I have. But the one one memory I have is of the family dog that would give anyone whom dared look at him a very hard times that would often result in running for ones life. I was often on the running end. To Wendy,Faye, and Linda, I’m truly sorry for ur loss. We have lost a number of our family within the last year and a half. I hope ur faith will give peace and comfort during this time.
