I remember Katrina as such a wonderful, warm spirited person with a gift of caring for others. I loved being on the same team with her during my tenure at Sprint. She always had words of wisdom and conveyed them with such sincerity that one could do nothing but listen and feel privileged that she shared her thoughts. You will be missed, but your legacy will continue to live on.

Although, we only communicated through Facebook, as so many of our family members do. A part of our DNA make up, connects us spirituality and unconsciously we share a very special bond. It was so much honor and respect that we shared when ever communicating to each other, I could feel your presence even though you were a thousand miles away. I do appreciate all the love and respect you showed and gave me as your big cousin from the West Coast, when ever I was trying to respectfully pass on some knowledge or wisdom. You received it and responded with grace and love, and I appreciate it. I'm so happy and fortunate to have had those exchanges with you online. Eliminating the distance between family is one true beneficial aspect of the world wide web. We have nothing but love for you and all our family and will meet you all in Zion, The New Jerusalem
Shine bright. Your cousin
CA & Family.

Katrina and I worked together for a number of years at Sprint. She was always sweet and sincere. After Sprint she reached out to me about illustrating a book for kids address albinism. That conversation was then changed as we encouraged each other during out fights with cancer. Iโ€™m going to continue praying for her husband, children, and family. She was truly an Angel...and she still is.

Katrina and I met years ago when we worked together And we quickly became friends and stayed in touch. She is gone way too soon but one thing I do know about her is that she loved her family with all her heart. I know she will be smiling down on them in heaven. We will all miss her so much.

Iโ€™m at a loss for words. My condolences to the family. The last time we talked, it was about getting a family reunion for this side of the family. I wish we wouldโ€™ve gotten it together. You were so soft spoken and helpful with the information you shared. You are already missed. Praying for strength of the family. Take you rest cuz!

For the little time my wife and I knew Katrina in college, this much we are certain - She was truly a kind soul with so much optimism for life. She saw the best in us before she even met us, and she never met a single stranger. Peace and Love to Salim and their beautiful children.

Rest In Peace, Katrina.

Nik & Emilia.
