Kate was a great friend and a very strong woman. I was in Sunday school with her for a long time. We had long talks about things in our life. I know she is free of pain now. Will miss her very much.

Kate was a very kind lady. I will always remember her from the Micro Races. She was always running the concession stand while Jim and Terri were racing. Prayers for her and Terri..
