So very sorry to learn of Katie's death - we had been trying to locate her since we also are out of state. She was one of my very favorite cousins and we so enjoyed Kate and Gary's visit when they were travelling near our area. We send our prayers and sympathy to her family and know that she will be greatly missed.
