I loved Katie and admired her kindness, strength, intuitiveness, and creativity. She was gifted a beautiful son with CP and with the strength of God, became a wonderful mother and provider. She shared her gifts with others by teaching crafts, cake decorating, & knitting; in fact, she had everyone on our dental team over to learn to knit! I met Katie in the aftermath of her first bout with cancer. I took her under my wing and she was my biggest cheerleader as we developed a close friendship. She helped with my son’s Eagle ceremony and gave my sons joy with her Christmas fudge (I have her secret recipe in my cookbook with a beautiful photo). Most of all, she helped me deal with the mountains I made of molehills; it didn’t matter that her problems were far worse than mine. She was stubborn and lived longer than I ever thought possible. I was the first one to see in in recovery after multiple drastic surgeries in the beginning. As we drifted apart, I never stopped loving her and keeping in touch through her son, Danny, and friend, David. She was close, but she never did finish her bucket list of visiting each state in the US. I am comforted with the thought that she is in heaven and can see the entire Universe, let alone all 50 states.
