"I will always feel so blessed and grateful to have spent precious hours with Kate and Connie. They were both truly remarkable people and raised a wonderful, caring family. The stories of their lives were a joy for me to hear. Tragedies, adventures, and just everyday life showed me how they lived a full life together and what a wonderful example of love and kindness they gave to all that their paths crossed. I know they are finally together again, watching down, proudly, on the people that they shared their remarkable life with. I will always carry them fondly in my heart."
