I will miss Katherine and her sweet ways. She and her husband, Adolf, were always so gracious to my husband and me. We met Adolph at the Bon Foods in 1978 shortly after we moved to Stafford. I still have a bible I bought from their book section.

When we started going to Mt Ararat Baptist Church, we were pleased to see them there. They were good and faithful. We loved them both.

Gail & Craig my heart goes out to you. I have so many wonderful memories of Mrs. Katherine. I know she will be greatly missed and I know I miss all the pig roasts and swimming at the house and all the other great memories I shared with her. She was such an amazing lady. I will keep everyone in my prayers and if there is anything that I can do for the family, please don't hesitate to let me know. God bless.
