I met Katie (Kite) when I was a very young girl, a friend of her little sisters; Renee and LaMetra. Katie was definitely someone we looked up to and almost every little girl wanted to grow up and be like her, she was such a Barbie Doll. She was never afraid to pursue her dreams. Katie you were a positive example to young girls in our African American community. Thank you for showing us we can be successful in life. May you rest in your Saviors arms. Darlene Hon Williams.

I can only imagine that your pain runs very deep and I'm sending you prayers of love and comfort. Warmest Wishes Francine Harmon

Katie has always been a beautiful person. Inside and out. I had the opportunity of knowing she and Odessa throughout some 60 years or better. She truly took advantage of the teaching from teachers who cared back in the days. After reading all of her accomplishments you can truly say she knew her purpose and God gave her many gifts. Especially the gift of how to touch the spirit of others she encountered daily. I am glad our paths crossed in life. May God continue to bless her family and especially her new grandson to carry her wonderful spirit.

Katie and I have been friends since High School (Courter Tech). Every time I got on or off the plane in Florida I would always see her. Seems like she would always there to greet me when I arrived or see me off when I left. Fly high my friend you will be missed. Praying for the family. Ida Thomas
