I met Katherine through my friend at the Terrace a little over 3 years ago. I would go everyday and see them both with my dog Misty. Misty dearly loved my little dog. Katherine and I became great friends. We shared stories of our lives. We played checkers together alot as that seemed to be her favorite thing to do next to shopping that we ended up doing and sometimes just joy riding. Katherine and I would set outside in the warm sunny day's and just enjoy the sun and conversation. I enjoyed her company and will always cherish the memories of her and hold her friendship deep inside my heart always. She was such a gem! I thank the family for sharing her with me and allowing me to become her friend and spend time with such a wonderful Lady! Mary Richardson. God Bless the family and I pray for them all as they go through this great Loss.
