I feel very fortunate to have been Katie's friend. I started talking to Katie in 1987 when I handled the MDA accounts at JHH. We talked several times a week and always said lets get together and we could never get the time to meet so we were telephone friends until January 2000 when I started working in the Neurology clinic. I heard someone page her to the front desk and I called the front desk and asked if it was the Katie McGuire from the MDA and to send her to see me. We instantly became friends and would get together and talk for hours about family, friends, our jobs. She helped me through a very difficult time when my husband passed and I was able to help her when Dan passed. I will missed our time together , she was a very special person and she loved talking about her family. Katie you will be missed by everyone. Thank you for the wonderful memories.

Katie had the amazing ability to be a close friend to thousands of people in hundreds of families all at the same time. She knew her campers and their parents by name. She knew the special situations that each of those families were dealing with throughout the year. She boosted every ones spirits with her energy, optimism and caring. She made each family and each camper feel like they were the most important people in the world to her. Very few people knew Katie's own burdens. But many of us heard her speak of her love for husband , children and grandchildren. I hope her children know how Katie struggled with how much time she took from her own family in order to help others. Katie was a saintly, beautiful person that will be missed by many.

I worked with Katie through MDA for many years as a REM Case Manager. What a lovely lady to know and work with. She did so much for so many kids and was such a blessing to many. I am so thankful to have known her and so sorry for your loss. She will be greatly missed. May beautiful memories sustain all of you.

I was fortunate enough to work with Katie at MDA and of course learned a tremendous amount from her about caring, supporting, and empowering the families we serve. Beyond the work, Katie had a tremendous personal impact as I witnessed how she loved and supported her family. That witness to unconditional love is a legacy that we all aspire to but few achieve. Katie you will be so missed by all that love you,but I know that many others that love you have already greeted you in heaven. Rest well
