"I am devastated to hear the news of Aunt Katie?s passing. She was one of my favorite people and she was always gentle and caring. I loved going on vacation together every summer since I was a child and even into adulthood. The thing I will probably remember most is the smell of her perfume; I can always recall it and I will miss it. Uncle Mike and Family, I?m so sorry and we will all miss her very much."
