Katie was one of my favorite people I met while working for Judge Zoghby. We bumped into each other a few weeks ago and had lunch. One of the things we talked about was how she would see her son again one day in heaven. I'm so sorry for your loss, but I have to smile when I think about their reunion. May her Soul Rest in Peace.
