My sweet selfless beautiful step daughter. When i asked if you ever thought "why me" you simply shrugged and said "if i have to take one for the team so be it". Always so forgiving and thankful and it made me so happy to spend the precious time together that we did. I will never lose contact with your sisters or girls again!! Love you Sallie xxxxx

I am saddened by the news of Katherine passing, I am honored to have known such a special woman of faith. I know she shared that with you. Someone told me, when I had a special person die in my life, that you carry their memories as treasures. May you carry these always and store them close to your hearts! Peace, edie

To the family of LT Lambright. Thank you so much for sharing your mother, daughter, sister and niece with us. We both learned so much from her while we were stationed together in Beaufort. Your mother helped us through a lot and i still appreciate all that she did for us. Out thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time.

Dear Katherine. You have fought the good fight and run the race with diligence. Though we never met I knew a lot about you. Till we meet in our Fathers house in Heaven. May you rest in eternal peace. We pray that God may protect your children and keep them safe from harm.
Your Aunt Refilwe ( South Africa).

While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words alone will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return our loved one to us. Stay strong family. Lots of love Gogo NaSamu.
