Dear Proven Family,
We were saddened to learn of Katie's recent death. Paul and I have such happy memories of golfing and socializing with Katie and Chip at Highland Country Club. They were two very special people to us. Always a lot of fun to be around! Our sincere sympathy to all of you. Take care.

John, Sue & Brian
Ruby & I were saddened to hear of Katie's passing. She was a fixture in my life whom I introduced to Ruby as well. Me always made a point to visit Chip and Katie whether in Arizona each winter or on our trips to Pittsburgh. We would like to think that both our parents are together somewhere having a before dinner cocktail and listening to Chip's latest joke. Katie will be missed by many, including us.

My prayers to all of you. I have known Katie for a very short time. She loved to tell stories about growing up. I loved to listen. God is in your corner at a time like this-so am I. Peace
