Aunt Kat we definitely got really close this last year. You was always trying to crack jokes to get momma riled up or you burping your bag and run us all out the house. You was always sending me to get food and have lunch or dinner together talking about we can get fat together lol. This last year reminded me when I was young and I would go to South Carolina to stay with you and Uncle Terry and you worked at the donut hole. I love you and miss you bunches already.

This is pictures of aunt Kat and uncle Jimmy. I know that they won't married by law but they loved each other very much. He took care of her why she was sick in and out of the hospital. He passed away in July last year. And she was with him till the end.

Man at first it didn't seem like u passed. I had my mind on u just left and I had to find u like I use to. When you and uncle Jimmy go hide and I always found y'all. But now that I see ur picture and ur obituary with ur name it hurts so bad cuz it hit me that hey u can't go find her anymore. It hurts that we wasn't close the last 5 months we had some words. I remember when I had to show u and uncle Jimmy how to work the laptop and y'all took pictures of each other. Or you chasing Keith around the kitchen to the corner you be calling him your hunky monkey. And him calling get her uncle Jim Bob 😂 and we be laughing. And we trying to figure out why he called uncle Jimmy that. Aunt Kathy I will miss you so much and I love
