Dear Sharon and all of Katie's family, I am so very sad, surprised, and heartbroken to hear of Katie's passing. She and I were great friends when we were younger. I attended her wedding to Sam, but lost track of each other for several years. I reached out to her again after she and Terry married and am very happy we got to visit with them once about 8 years ago. Unfortunately, life gets busy and we all forget to stay in touch with a few people that mean a lot to us. My heart hurts as I write this. She's definitely one of the kindest, truest people I've ever known. I've thought about her so often over the years and wish we had remained close. We had a million laughs together and I know how dearly she loved her grandfather and mom. She even loved the stubborn horse she had in Jr high..I can't remember his name, only that he bucked me off and we laughed until we cried! I never met her children but I can only imagine how fiercely she loved them and her grandchildren. Please accept my sincerest condolences for each of you and I will keep all of you in my prayers. God Bless you, beautiful friend.

Katie was a bright, strong, beautiful woman, who loved Samantha and Cole above all else. She worked hard, and with integrity. I am so sorry to hear that illness shortened her life. I have heartfelt sympathy for her husband and Samantha and Cole.
