I’ll always have fond memories of Kat, our birthday celebrations, working at the bake table and on the Fellowship Committee at Pilgrim UCC. Hold on to your memories, and let them guide you during this time of sadness. My sincere sympathy to Kat’s family.

Kat was a dear friend. My heart goes out to the family. She was like a big sister to me, and she talked constantly of the family.
Her little busy feet can slow down now.

Aunt Kat was a very special person to me and I miss her greatly. I’m thankful for the good times and all the precious memories. She always had a smile on her face and joy in her heart which she shared with all she met. She always had a joke to tell and I can still see her standing at the door waving goodbye until you were out of her sight whenever anyone visited. She may be out of my sight but not my heart.
