Kathrine those eyes, that smile, every Sunday my baby girl and I will look forward to seeing you each week in the baby room at church. In the Navy we used to say "Bravo Zulu" and I say to you today, my sister, my friend and shipmate "Bravo Zulu" job well done! I can also hear God and his awesome voice saying well done my good and faithful servant . There have been many tears shed in my home this week for you and your family but you don't have to suffer no more. Family we are praying that God hold you up when you can't stand and that he breathes for you when you can't even exhale.

Katherine you are NOW an EDUCATED, ACCOMPLISHED ANGEL just as you were here on Earth. Your children seen how amazing you were. They seen how hard you worked to make their Word go around and around again. You set the example and the bar high but because you were their mother, there is NOTHING that your girls CANT DO. They watched you be a strong beautiful human being that they called “mom” who worked her magic like it was nothing. What you did on this Earth to be a successful, educated, accomplished, dedicated, hard working, strong, a fighter and a genius, ALL at the same time while being a woman, a leader, a SHERO, a mother and an example to many not just to your daughters but to the many lives you’ve touched and helped in your journey is simple unmatched! Thank you for your services! You were never selfish. You paved the way so WE didn’t have to!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICES!!!!
Remembering you in love and light... Rest now!

My Dearest Katherine, I never got to say goodbye but I made sure I told you I love you. Asking why you isn't something I'll do. Because I know God needed you more. I won't shed a tear. Because your no longer in pain. I will miss you everyday but will see you again along the way. -Love you! Sleep now Angel!👼
