  19. I simply cannot put into words how deeply Katie’s loss is felt by her work family. I was Katie’s boss. We hired her as a “a baby nurse” and she grew into a competent, valuable member of our nursing staff. Katie was so smart, so sweet, and so loved.

  20. Our thoughts and prayers are with you! May God hold you close, heal your pain, and comfort your hearts.

    Romans 8:16-17 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

    Our love,
