Katie was a beautiful person in and out. Every Sunday she cooked a huge meal for her family. She welcomed me as if i was one of the family. One of my favorite childhood memories came from the kindness and love this beautiful lady shared. Im forever greatful for knowing such an amazing woman. She loved unconditionally and I am so lucky to have learned family values from her and will always be inspired by the pureness of Katie's heart. She is definitely angel and probably has the most amazing spot in heaven. Rest in heaven Grandma Katie.
