    I never net Kat, but my nephew, Devon, is a great judge of character and he chose Kat aa his best friend and partner. It is devastating to have to bear the pain of Kat’s early departure, but it is ever so true that God must have needed another angel.

    Deepest condolences to her families and friends who will struggle to get over the loss of the bright light of her soul.

    Kat Lit up any room she entered. Her loving kindness and warm smile always preceded her. She didn’t have to speak a word for her beautiful spirit to be seen by all. Kat will be deeply missed.

    Kat and I were motorcycle friends. She was an incredible artist and did a beautiful charcoal drawing of me with my bike that I will treasure forever. She also did a beautiful drawing for my 87 year old mother who was quarantined in her elderly care home during covid. Kat you are a beautiful soul. Until we meet again.
