Aunt Kat always made us feel so welcomed when we stayed with you as kids. She
made everything so much fun. I loved coming and visiting you all. I will miss her .
The last time I was there she gave me an Afghan that I still use. She wanted me to
have something before I left . She cooked a wonderful meal and I enjoyed the visit
so much .
