My Beautiful Little Sister, My heart aches in knowing I won't be able to come and hang out with you, hear your beautiful voice and have our girly talks about life and this crazy world. You were the shining star whenever you came around and had so much beauty in your heart. I will always cherish our times together and will never forget you and all your kindness. Heaven has a beautiful Angel now who will watch over us and make sure we carry on that love and kindness you so willingly gave. Forever your Knicki I just cant imagine life without our Katrina:(

You became part of the family when you snuck into our home and hearts many years ago as a young teenage girl. We had many great times and made lots of memories. You were always a little spitfire, life of the party, a force to be recon with...I still cannot believe you're gone forever. We had just spoken not too long is so surreal. You have touched so many lives in your lifetime and will never be forgotten. The light you brought into so many lives will carry on. Your beautiful face and heart and love for life will be truly missed💕

Every morning, I hope this is only a horrible dream! I struggle with this reality. I only pray that you know how much I love you! I will think about you and miss you every day of my life! I have so many favorite memories. One that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately was from last year. You came over and we made cookies, danced, sang and decorated for Christmas. We hadn’t even had thanksgiving yet! I wish I could relive that day! Love you forever and always 😘

I remember you slowly moving into my aunts house back in your senior year. You and my cousin two giddy girls, chasin boys and enjoying the ease of being young and free. You always had a beaming smile that’d light up a room anywhere you went. You had that infectious personality that would touch a stranger and effect them even if you never saw them again. It had been years since I saw you but I got the chance to run into you at ApCal last year. Your smile still beaming, your personality just as bubbly, and that fierceness still evidently present. The world put out your light too soon but I know you’ll be shining down on your friends and family. Fly high beautiful...

The first time I ever met Katrina, my daughter Scarlett was so nervous being out in the middle of nowhere.(We were with her mom getting the motor home.) Katrina started singing “Let it Go” from Frozen, Scarletts eyes lit up and she said, “You sound just like Princess Elsa!” It was priceless! Thank you for making my baby girl feel safe that night. I promise I will keep on your mother about her appearance for you and make sure she always looks presentable.😊 You will be greatly missed!💜

Trina, thank you for always being there, you have always been such a giving and loving person, as “tough as nails” as you always portrayed yourself to be, you had one of the kindest and softest hearts. I will never forget all of our memories, as children and adults, you made growing up so much better at times I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders. You were good at making people feel so loved. The kids say hi and that they love you So much, and thank you for always being so fun! One day we’ll get to carpool Karaoke, Shake our booties, laugh till our bellies hurt, and drink a drink together, until then my friend! “Get it girl” I love you!

Beautiful girl you are truly missed... I remember the first night I meet you, you didn’t even know me but made me feel like we knew each other our whole lives. You made me laugh when I had nothing to laugh about my life was in a million pieces but you made me forget it all ... you made me feel like nothing matter but the moment thank you for dealing with me when I was crazy and thank you for always checking on me. No matter what happened you still would always check on me and always says us girls gotta stick together I will see you again girlie dance and sing and watch over us all we love you always
