I loved Katherine very much and will miss her. She will always be in my heart. Katherine had so many beautiful qualities, I can't name them all . Once I told her how I wished her legs didn't hurt so much and she replied "I just think of how much Jesus hurt on the cross so I can't complain". She loved God. her church and her family. I Know she is at peace now and happy. My thanks go out to the Pruitt family for taking such good care of her all these years. She was an absolute joy to be around. My Heloise (my nickname for her since she had an answer to fix anything) will rest in peace.
