I can remember her taking me to get my brother Michael from the Welch school but before we get thier we would goto Lena's subshop on the corner and I would get chocolate chip cookies and chocolate milk and we would have a picnic by the pond at the Welch. I also remember sleeping over alone and we would watch danger mouse. I have tons of memories just ask it will help. Live you soon much Mimi

    Debbie thinking of you, and your family, during this most difficult time. Your Mom was a very special "lady" and loved by all of us, her City Hall Family, and through the years to follow. Katie had an infectious laugh and always had a good word for everyone! There are so many fond memories I could share, but I would have to write a book. She was our most beautiful "Statue of Liberty" in the Jubilee Parade, and how your Mom loved to play cards, especially when we would all get together and play Pokeno! Katie will always remain in our hearts, and now she can rest with her beloved Linda and your Dad. XOXO
