So sorry my heart goes out to the Enete family!
Katy was one of the sweetest people I have ever met and a wonderful cook and hostess! We will never forget all the good times we had at the camp! I know she was tired snd probably didn’t feel very well but she cooked and visited with everybody with a smile the whole time we were there! My heart goes out to Henry Mill, her children and all the family! She will be so missed! We hold good memories of her in our hearts!
