Lawrence and Pam:

What I remember most about Kate is that when she was at our house for a Christmas get-together the last time, she was the only one who could get the blades out of our electric knife. The rest of us tried and tried, but she just pulled them right out. We think of her every time we use that knife and have to laugh because it is still tricky.

Love
Jack and Carole
