I'm so glad Mama, Viv and I got to visit with Katie last month. I will miss my beautiful cousin so much! She was always my favorite to sit next to at family holidays because we would talk about things we cook and share recipes with each other.
When I was a kid I remember getting a cabbage patch doll and I named it Katie because I was so enamored with her when she was a baby.
She was a wonderful soul and she will be greatly missed on this earth. She’s with PawPaw and MawMaw now having a great time. She will forever be young and beautiful.
Love y'all so much. 😘😘😘

May heart is broke. I know she is in God's hands now and resting at peace. From the early days coaching her at Sacred Heart to a month ago when she visited she was full of life, a caring person, and her zest for life and playing with Thomas was so great to see. Judi, Louie, and Hannah, I pray God gives you the strength to ease this pain a little with time. Find strength in him and know Mitz and I are here to share her memories, talk, hug, cry and what ever it take to bear this heartache. There are no words...We love y'all
