    To dearest Terri and her family – It was bittersweet to hear about the loss of your beloved mother, our sweet Katie. How fondly I have remembered her through the years and thought of her beautiful eyes, her gentle laugh, her twinkling eyes, and her enjoyment of life. She was always a source of sunshine and fun whenever I would see her, lo, all those years ago. It was a delight to be around her, and I know she was hard working and always generous with her love toward others and her ability to help, extend a kindness, or share her delightful sense of humor. I know she had a well-lived life, and that she was truly loved by many. Rest, well, Katie. And may all those who cared for you receive the comfort and caring thoughts that will carry them through this difficult time. Sending love your way! Take care.
