Katie was an amazing friend and a truly special spirit. The world will be less bright and shiney without her in it. I am heartbroken. My heart goes out to Pat, Tegan, Kevin, Sean and all of her family.

I have a lot of fond memories of Katie. I worked with her for many years at Niagara Falls Memorial. Always so kind and caring. In fact when my water broke for my daughter, she was the one so very concerned and drove me home. So sorry to hear of the loss of such a great person..
