I have known Katie and Ted ever since I was a little girl. My grandparents had steam engines and pretty much every steam show we went to they were there with their live steam models running down a stretch of track. I got to know their whole family and they became like family. Katie and Ted were like a second set of grandparents for me. When I was in nursing college in Peoria, Ted and Katie had me over for supper. Such nice and thoughtful folks. I will miss them at every show but will keep a special place in my heart for them both. Katie is now reunited with Ted and all her other loved ones. Thinking of and praying for her friends and family members.

Diana, Debbie, Terry & all. I will always remember Katie as a fun-loving, strong woman who set an example for so many young women in Girl Scouting. We share such fond memories of Little Round-Up at Camp Tapawingo. No one can ever prepare you for losing a parent. My sincere condolences to you all.
