Aunty We all will miss you, I know this is a round trip ticket. From Mother God to Mother Earth to Mother God again. Welcome Home. Lantzy Betty Family Aunt Kate has only gone home she will always be in our hearts and minds till we meet up with her at home. I'm sure she'll have a big party planned for each of us. Last one in the pool mixes the drinks.

Kate, the classiest lady I have ever known and so blessed to have met her! Oh, she was special and ever so sweet. I will always remember Kate coming over to have permanent eyeliner applied at age 90! What a smile, what a personality! She lit up a room! Dear Lance and Veronica, we are so sorry for you loss. We are saddened we won't be able to attend tomorrow, as we are out of town, but we send our love and will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. We all have a special angel in Heaven now. May God Bless Kate, as she will be missed.

I was about 4 - 5 years old when I met Kate and Lantz. My father and Lantz Sr. were business partners and my parents needed a baby sitter while they left town. There was Kate tending to me as she should... and then some for a whole week ! When I was picked up I never forgot her. Her life force, zest for life, and shear love! She may be gone from here, but I can assure you she will always live on forever in my heart as well as everyone else she met. Never forgotten, always loved. To her family, I am sorry I cannot be there at this time, but am there with you in spirit. See you soon. Much love, Thursday.
