May the promises of Christ console and keep you until His face is revealed.

Kate was a student in my education class at UCCS, Schools/Society/& Diversity, spring semester of 2010. She was a delight! She always engaged in our class discussions, was very focused, and was secure in who she was. I could tell she was going to make an excellent teacher! We all loved her perspective, opinions, and honesty. Our world has lost a true ray of light and I know her passing leaves a huge void for her family, friends, and 3rd grade students at Soaring Eagles. I loved the photo you used in the GAZETTE obituary, as her smile truly lit up a room. That is how I will remember her. Although her time here was too short, she had already made a difference. Genuinely, Kristie M. Ewig/College of Education/Instructor/UCCS

Dear Ones Wally, Rose, Emil, Jaime, George, Rebecca, Peter, Sarah and Kim and all the beautiful children: As my mind tries to generate words, all that flows are tears harder and with more anguish. I know that this is the Lords way but it is so soon to travel that path. Soon I will be with you to hug a little bit of Kate from my heart. I the meantime, sobs, masses and prayers are with you each. Your Loving, Bridget
Monday, January 21, 2013
My condolences go to the family. May the God of all Comfort provide you with whatever is needed to cope with your great loss. God promised a wonderful hope to see our loved ones again.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Banzhaf and Kim,

Please accept my deepest sympathies regarding the loss of Kate...I treasure the times that we had at your house during the summer and winter of 2004. Kate was an amazing individual and we had a lot of fun together. Although I cannot possibly imagine how difficult this is for your family, please know that we're praying that God will bless you with His peace that transcends all understanding.
Friday, January 18, 2013
Wally, Rose, Emil, George, Peter and Kim : I am still in a fog about Kate's passing. I can't believe it. I was blessed and just plain lucky to have Rose, Kate and Kim in my Venturing Crew in Richardson Texas. We had so much fun it should have been illegal. I always got Kim and Kate mixed up and I think they thought it was pretty funny, no I know they thought it was funny. I remember when Crew 44 were "the night guards" at the church the night before they were having their huge garage sale and we had a fashion show. We found the most outrageous outfits, hats, and whatever else we could find and laughed till we cried. I am honored and blessed that you shared a small part of your lives with me. I will keep you all in my prayers and close to my heart and hope it will help heal. All my love and my prayers are with your family.
Friday, January 18, 2013
Please accept our sincere thoughts and prayers for your family. Our family knew Kate from her student teaching last year. My son Zach enjoyed her so much, and I was amazed by her creativity and confidence. I feel lucky that we got to know her. She inspired so many kids at our school. She was an incredible person and we will miss her.

Katie Schonhoff

P.S. I thought you might appreciate the memory that sticks out the most regarding Kate (and Kim). In all honesty, I was so excited when the Banzhaf's had twin girls. Even though I was only a kid at the time, I always thought it was kind of a special blessing for their family to finally have a couple of girls. (no offense to the boys) And because I am a twin, I was fascinated by another set of twins at church. When I would look over and see how much Kate and Kim were loved by their parents and their older brothers, I thought it was so sweet. I still remember the adorable little blonde-headed girls sitting on their brothers' laps during Mass and then playing around in the cafeteria afterwards. We (my sister and I) would try to figure out which twin was which.

Kim, I know that the twin bond is a strong one. I am really sorry about your sister! I will pray for an extra measure of grace and comfort for you and your Mom during this difficult time!
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Rose, Wally and family we wish we could be there to give you all a hug and hold your hands. We are lifting you up in prayer during this very difficult time.Much love, Tim & Idell, Lydia, Graham, Lyle and Aurele
Wednesday, January 16, 2013

My thoughts and prayers are with you,
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Kate was an incredible woman who inspired me in so many ways. Whenever I have to make a scary decision that pushes me out of my comfort zone, I think "What would Kate do?" I'll miss her smile, her courage, her honesty, and her beautiful spirit. Though she left us far too soon, I am blessed to have known her. I know that wherever she is now, she's facing this next adventure with courage and a mischievous sparkle in her eyes. Love you, Kate. I'll miss you and I know that part of you lives on in the many ways you changed me.

May the Lord Comfort the Banzhaf family
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Diego Salazar was blessed to have Kate as his third grade teacher this year. The loss of Kate is a loss to also the children who she taught in the school system. Kate was very good with all children and especially with Diego. Kate was so willing to help us when we would call about Diego. She was so involved with her class that she also created a poem book about winter for the children to write in and sent them to the families of her students. I am deeply sorry to her family for thier loss. I pray that the Lord gives you comfort in your time of grief. I want you to know that you had a wonderful person in your family that embraced others and losing her was a loss to everyone she encountered. Our deepest Sympathy The Salazar Family.
Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I send to the Banzhaf family this poem.

Ascension

And if I go,
while you're still here...
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
-behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
-both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.
Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I met Kate when she completed her student teaching with me at Broadmoor Elementary last year. Wow, what an incredibly talented and creative teacher she was. Students, parents, and staff loved her! The kids at both Broadmoor Elementary and Soaring Eagle were so lucky to have Kate as their teacher. Losing Kate is a big loss to our teaching community. She had the best smile and laugh! We will forever miss you Kate! Love, Suzanne Bayer

I didn't know Kate or her sister but before he was killed in an Austin car wreck, my Erik went to school with Fred and then Emil.We attended Freds'service at the little church on Arapaho. Rose tutored Erik in math in our home. When I heard about Kate, my heart broke for your family. I know the pain of losing one child and can't imagine burrying two. Know that we pray for your strength and faith and send love. the Belanger family/ Springpark
