I was so sorry to hear of Katie's passing. I really only knew Katie from her cheerleading and going to school with my niece Stevee. But she always spoke when she saw me and always had a smile on her face. What a beautiful gal. I cant imagine what your family is going through but there are plenty of us who are thinking of you all... Our thoughts are with you!!!

Chris and family,

I only knew Katie thru Tracy and Zac but what I remember is that any time I ever saw her she was smiling. She had such a bubbly personality and she was beautiful.
I am so sorry - I can't even begin to imagine the loss you are all feeling. If you need anything, just call me. Zac knows the number.

Dear Kris & Nichole,

No one knows why bad things happen to those so innocent and whose life has hardly begun. For now it will have to remain the painful mystery that it is. Losses like this can make us challenge our faith; however, this is precisely the time when our faith needs to be its strongest.

I am praying that your faith will help you through this very difficult time and help you to know that God's purpose, whatever it may be, is at work. I pray that you will find the strength to get you through your grief and sadness.

In thinking about your loss, I would like to leave you with the oft quoted words of an observer at Abraham Lincoln's deathbed who said upon his passing, "Now he belongs to the angels."

In Sincere Friendship,

Andrea Turner
