Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Our bodies die but out spirit lives on. I will miss you Katie. It seems like yesterday we were all playing in the pool. Words cannot express my deepest sympathy to your family. I know you are looking down on us with Jesus. We will be strong and live the way you would have wanted. Happy and full of life. Til we meet again my friend.

Katie and I were Boy Scout sisters together, and she was like a sister to my cousin who is like a sister to me. That made Katie family. We’re missing a branch to our family tree, now. She will always be loved.

To the family and friend, ya’ll are all in my prayers. Thank God that I got to meet Katie in school. It saddens me that I didn’t do a better job if stating in touch with everyone. Katie Jo gave me a wonderful blessing when she introduced me to Christ. I thank her for that. I know that she is in a much better place now than we are. And I know she is watching over her family, husband, and her precious child. Please just know that if there is anything I can do just let me know. Rest in Peace with Our Father Above Katie.

Ohhh Sweet Katie…I remember you very well from school, & you always had such a kind soul. I’ve got to keep in touch through Facebook & watched how incredible your life has been and how much you have accomplished and got to see the family that you had begun,& as shocking as it was to hear the news of your passing, I’m glad to know that you are now at peace. Prayers are sent for the ones closest to you that remain here on Earth.

Donna and I are so sorry for your loss. It is the hardest for parents to lose a child. Words can never express truly how one feels or the sorrow in your heart.

I worked with Katie at KMart, she was always smiling and looking for the bright side of things. This world needs more like Katie. May you find comfort and peace in each other and in your memories of your sweet, beautiful Katie.
