You are the prime example of what a strong independent woman is. Thank you for being such a positive influence in not just my life but my entire family. Thank you for always being honest and putting us in our placed when we needed it! You and mom have been best friends since I can remember. You were never moms friend you were always Aunt Kat. Family isn't always blood, sometimes its friends that turn into family that support's us more then our own family does! You were that person for mom, myself and my brothers and we will forever be grateful for the relationships we had with you. We love you so much and will miss you more then you know!
