Brian this note is from a long standing friend who now lives in Kansas that knew Katrina when she was a baby. I am shocked that such a nice person had to fight the illness that she had. Katrina left a legacy for all of you to follow. She lived her life in such a way as to leave you with life lessons to cherish. She is now with God and will make a place in Heaven for all of us. May God bless all of you as he has her.

Brian, Spencer, and Kendall,
Jon and I are so sorry for your loss! Katrina was such a gentle, loving, beautiful woman both inside and out. Her love for you all and her love for the Lord were so evident in her life, as natural as breathing.
I so treasure our time together in Bible Study Fellowship. I enjoyed her wit and her wisdom! We think back fondly as well when Craig and Spencer played together and against one another. All of you are such a quality family. I pray you know how many are lifting you all up in prayer as you wait until you are one day reunited with Katrina again.
Much agape love,
Susan, Jon, and Craig Austin
