It was our honor to assist Katie and her family with Make-A-Wish trip to Florida in 2012. We were introduced to Katie and re-acquainted with her family. I know that Katie is now well, whole, and looking down at us with the love that flowed from her. She taught us to never give up, to think of others first, and that family is everything! RIP Katie.
