    Aunt Katherine was an extraordinary woman. She reminded me so much of my great grandmother (Geraldine). I’m going to miss her. However, it warms my heart that she is walking the golden streets of glory with Uncle Mac and my Nanny. Prayers are going up for her kids and grandkids and the rest of our family!
