Ms. Katherine was a very sweet and special lady. I enjoyed coming on shift and she would be smiling and giving hugs. She would ask me if I was ready for a cookie and a soda and ask me how my day was going. I'm going to miss her kindness and love and hugs. Rest in peace sweet lady. You'll be missed.
