This is one of the times that I have regrets for living so far away, wishing that I could be there for Aunt Katy's celebration of life. Uncle Dick and family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I’ll always remember the happy times I spent down at her house as a kid playing in the creek & digging in the dirt. It breaks my heart to see her go but knowing she’s up in heaven with the best makes it hurt a little less. I’m so thankful I made it to the reunion this year to see her. Sending all the love & prayers I can to all of you!
