Goodbyes and grief are so hard but our special memories with you are helping us to cope. You were a wonderful and gentle soul full of faith and love for your family that will always remain in ours hearts. There is a saying
that when we lose a loved one on earth we gain an angel in heaven that
will be wrapping their arms around us to offer comfort during our time of
sorrow. Mom know that your family will always love and miss you.
Love your children.

As I think of the life of our Aunt Katherine, I am reminded of the Proverbs 31 woman.
Oh who can find a virtuous woman, for her price is far above rubies.
She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household.
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed.
You are loved and will be greatly missed by your Florida family - the Marinos, Salmons, and Pates.
