Mom was an amazing wife, mother and grandmother. She always had stories to tell and was always there when you needed her. I miss her everyday.

Kate became my best friend when I move to Kansas. Although she always was kidding me about being an OKIE! Martin, Robert, Sara and Emma your mother was an angle in human form. Not everone gets to day that they had world's best mother but I'm sure Kate was the best. Sorry for your valuable loss. I love her like my own mother. She will be missed by so many. And her love for all the grandchildren was so real and beautiful. Love you Kate and until we meet again.
