Memories Timeline


  1. Im am so so terribly sorry for what happened! You guys don’t know me personally, but I saw Katelyn in the list of orbituaries and couldn’t help but to click her page and comment. I want to express my deepest condolences to the family. Can you imagine a world where there will be no more suffering at all like this? Or sickness? I wanted to show you something that really helped me when I lost my grandma. It’s a bible prophecy shown at Isaiah 33:24 and Isaiah 24:8 where it talks about the chance of sickness and death being rid of and gives us an absolutely wonderful hope for the future. Soon, our imaginations will become a reality and we know this because “God cannot lie” (Titus 1:2). Knowing this when I lost one of my loved ones really helped my healing. So I wanted to share it with everyone else too. The bible based website jw. org , offers more comfort and answers more intriguing bible questions if you wanted to look at it; and once again, I am so so sorry for your loss. You’ll be in my prayers.

  2. Jacqui, Jim and Brendan, my heart breaks for you! I cannot believe she is gone. Please know that I will keep you all in my prayers for a long time. Katie was so special and sweet. I know she still with you and al always will be!

  3. Kat, While I know now you are up in Heaven looking down on all of us, I want you to know that you will be dearly missed. We will think of you everyday in all the little moments life has. Everytime Rylee sticks her tongue out at us, when Sara uses her Easy Bake oven mixes you made for her, when we see something that is Hello Kitty, the list could go on forever. The last few days I have been in nothing short of a daze. As your brother and I go through songs to play for you, the tears won’t stop flowing and it has started to hit home. I will always miss your laughter, your spunk and your love for life. Even though I didn’t know you as long as some, you have touched my life in indescribable ways. I love you Kat and I will continue loving you forever.

  4. Katelyn I miss you! And I will never forget you. The memories I have I will treasure forever. You brightened the world for everyone that knew you. Our little Angel in Heaven… until we meet again. OXOX Love, Kim
