My heartfelt sadness to learn of the passing of my dear friend Mary Kate. We worked at Perimeter Center for many years until her retirement. We continued to keep in touch by phone or meeting for lunch. There will never be anyone sweeter and kind than she.

Mary Kate was an amazing woman of great emotional intelligence. She kindly sat with me the hour before my father's funeral. She lovingly listened and told stories too. I am so grateful that we were family. She will be greatly missed.
