    Thank you, Kate, for all your energy that you devoted to the 2015 National Docent Symposium in Cincinnati. Your sense of humor was a great addition to the organizing committees.

    Gerry and Girls, Was so saddened to hear this. Kate was such a fun-loving and sweet lady and loved you all dearly. I once jokingly told Gerry, I helped raise the girls. The most memorable story (without names) was when someone wrecked Mom's new car while she was out of town and I had to pull Dad out of the Yearly P&G meeting downtown. I don't know who was more nervous, me or the one who had the accident! Such good memories of this family. Love and Prayers to you all.

    We are a lesser people if we cannot carry on her grace and awesome sense of humor. She once told me a great story about dropping Gerry off at the airport which I laugh about to this day. I am so sorry I cannot make it in for the arrangements. I am required to be in Detroit for meetings on Saturday. Bill O'Connor
