    I am so sorry for your loss. Katie was a beautiful young lady, and I can’t imagine how hard this must be.
    I trust and pray that our Heavenly Father will comfort you and remind you of many wonderful times that you had together.
    II Cor. 1:3-4 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
    What a hope we have! May God hold you in His Everlasting Arms!

    I didn’t know Katie, but grew up and graduated with your grandpa Dallas and grandma Mary.
    I love them so much and I know you all are hurting. Keep the Lord your God with
    you. He will give you strength. We never know why and we do ask why but we
    know God has his reasons. Just can’t imagine the hurt and loss you feel.
    Please use each other in strength and love.
    God bless you all.
