Two years ago today we said goodbye to 33-year-old Katherine (“Katie”), RIP. Today her mother Kay posted this amazing reflection. Click the link above the photograph for Kay’s recollection and reflection.

Below is a photograph of Katherine (she preferred her formal name in her adult years) and Christopher (“Chris”), her husband and best friend, during a family trip to Costa Rica in 2009. Chris, you were the best of the best. Payers for Chris Katie’s father, Steve, sister Kristin, brother Andrew, and Kay.  “And a glad sound comes with the setting sun: ‘Well done! Well done!'” – final stanza, hymn “Come, Labor On.”

  1. This is while I was grieving for my Dad Gordon. He passed away two years ago on May 18th. I was with him. So glad for the memories as I’m sure you are for her.

    • Sheryl, I loved your Dad. Uncle Roy – “Junior” as Grandpa Titus called him – was a chip off LeRoy, Sr.’s block. He had that Titus resilience and funny bone. I remember two years ago. You and the family did well by your Dad. Glad for all the memories.
