Kate and I were great friends in high school. Some of my most fond memories of SL were cruising around with friends in her silver Jetta and skipping class to get coffee at Berkeley Coney. Her smile always lit up the room. My heart sinks knowing she’s no longer with us.

Kate moved to Michigan during middle school and immediately fit into our friend group. She was so warm and funny! I remember going to her apartment on 13 mile and hanging out on her balcony on a warm, sunny afternoon. We thought it was so funny to see an airplane writing PEPSI in the sky. It must've been camera day at school, because I have pictures from that day. for our senior year, her dad screen printed our 'NO LIMIT SENIORS' t-shirts for us and I remember going to Joe's Army together to pick out the perfect camouflage. I had been thinking of Kate lately and was so sad to that she's gone now. I will never forget our time together while we were teenagers - it was all sunshine!!

Dear sweet “little cousin” Katie. Such a beautiful girl, gone far too early in her life! My heart breaks for Lila, Aunt Judy, and Carrie. She always took time to make it back to Cleveland with her mom for the big things, weddings, etc. So very sad.

What a tragic loss of a beautiful young woman. Kate will be deeply missed by her sister Carrie, mom-my Aunt Judy, and Lila, her little girl. May you all find the courage to carry on even after these devastating losses. We west coast cousins send our support and love.
