We may have never been blood related but we made it known we were cousins and we didn't care what anyone had to say about it! You will forever be in my heart!

I truly did love kate she meant so much to me, she talked me out of doing something that i would have regretted. She was always there for me when something happened or when she seen me upset, she was truly a blessing to me. Every day we woild walk up to eachother and call eachother our nicknames and then hug eachother. Those names were silly but meant alot to me. She helped me be happy again. Im so thankful for her family even though i dont know you all. I live you Kate and i always will. Rest Easy👼🏼🥺❤️

Katelyn was an amazing person who had a big heart. She was selfless and always made a bad day become an amazing one with just her smile. She impacted mine and many other lives tremendously and she will forever have a place in my heart. I can't even express the pain her family must be going through, but I can say that I'm truly sorry for their loss. I, along with many other people, love her and will keep loving her. She deserves nothing but love and prayers. She will keep living through our memories and will never be forgotten. 💜

There’s nothing bad we could even make up about this beautiful girl. She brought light, shine , and joy to the people around her. Not only did she bring laughs to the Claiborne bulldogs soccer team she now holds a part on the field and in the hearts of those who called her friend, daughter, sister, and teammate. May God bring joy to those who grieve, let this be the opportunity to find the lord. The first day in heaven is the first day of true happiness. Katelyn we love you and miss you dearly.

Kate always knew how to bring the light into someone’s day, or even life. Kate and I only talked a select few times, but when we did, she always cheered me up, and made me laugh. I talked to her two weeks ago at the fair and she was talking about going to the national guard. Kate was so loving, and had a beautiful soul. God sure did gain an amazing, beautiful angel. I hope you’re dancing in the sky, beautiful lady! I love and miss you Kate!💜🖤 See you again someday! Also, don’t dance too hard without

You was always one of my closest friends and I could tell you anything. We always didn’t see eye to eye but we eventually agreed on something and whenever people were down you would always have some way of making them smile and I’ll never forget that about you. You was always and will forever be my best friend!
