Kate was my best friend. Thanks She was kind, caring and never said a negative word against anyone. She loved her children and grandchildren and was a super wife and mother! My heart goes out to her family and I will miss her terribly but I have peace with the fact she is at peace and I was able to be with her and talk with her prior to her passing. RIP my friend and love, prayers and condolences to her family which I feel is part of my family. Ellen Parrish

Kate, You were a dear friend and we shared many chats about life and family. I know you are again hand in hand with Rick who I know loved you dearly. You will be missed but you are not forgotten, Big Hug Todd
