Aunt Katherine was the sweetest lady and loved. What a long life. She had her family, her church and her friends and that isn't something everyone has. She is with her Lord, Uncle Charlie and family members who have gone before. We will see her again one day soon.

Although no words of sympathy can take away your sorrow, may memories of your loved one give you strength for each tomorrow. She was a great lady and I will miss her.

Katherine was a wonderful sister who, along with my mother, lead by example; teaching the value of manners, patience, forgiveness, faith and love. She'll be remembered with fond memories until we reunite in God's Heaven.
Your loving sister,
