I got to know ‘Katie’ when her husband shared a room with my dad at Pine Ridge. We became best friends and I always enjoyed speaking with her. She was such a lovely, lovely lady. I know her family will miss her and I send my condolences to you all for your loss. She was one of a kind and had a heart of gold. God bless you all.
