I was in Michigan to stop and see the Chudik's on way home from another event. Kate was there and made us feel so welcome. We watched videos from Steve growing up and she was so happy. I also have a 4th of July memory of her. We went to the lake and Michelle was at a dance show with Ella. I hung with Kate for awhile and I so admired her relationship with her grandkids. She was so sweet and caring, and loved being in Michigan. Thank you Kate for giving us Steve. Such a great friend, Dad, husband, and Doctor.
