Ms. Kat was a beautiful lady both inside and out with the grace and mannerisms of a true Southern belle. I am truly thankful to be able to call such a beautiful person my dear friend, to have been blessed by our friendship, and to witness the true love she had for Mr. Knox and her family. Heaven has truly gained an angel. Ill miss her dearly. Praying for her family during this time of such a tremendous loss.
