    Deep condolences to the family. What can be said that will vanquish your pain? Nothing. What should be said? I do not know. I do not know. As my Lord liveth, I wish I did.

    I knew Katherine in her younger years when she would come with my niece Kasey to Destin and Navarre Beach for our family “spring break” beach week. We loved Katherine and enjoyed her visits. We continued to see Katherine when we would visit Kasey and her family. Thankful for alot of good memories that we will cherish always. My heart is broken over her loss….such a beautiful soul taken away way too soon from her precious daughter, family and friends. Fly high Katherine.
