Dear Hennigan Family, I'm am so sorry to hear of your beloved Katrina's death. My grandmother was born in County Cork, and came to the U.S. via Boston and eventually to RI where she and my grandfather settled. Her name was Mary Naughton, her father was a Judge Owen Naughton and his wife's name was Barbara from whom I was named after. I do hope you find the answers to all your questions in her death. May she rest in peace

Katrina, You always had such a big heart. You were so selfless and giving. You were always so supportive of me over the years and so interested in how your family and friends were doing. You've made me laugh, and sometimes even cry, but most of all, you've made me feel loved, and you've always made me feel part of the family from the very beginning. I am so lucky to have been able to call you "my sister"-in-law. But I am sad beyond belief that you are no longer with us. You will forever be in our hearts, Katrina. All my love, Serge

Katrina - you were not only a wonderful baby sister but you were an amazing big sister. Since Casey first came into the world you always wanted to be there - to take her out, sit with her, watch her. As she got older you would talk to her about standing up for herself and being strong. Because of you she has turned into a wonderful strong loving person. Thank you for being in our lives from the very bottom of my heart. You will always and forever be missed. Mary ann

My beautiful sweet baby, my heart is aching. My heart is broken, I love you so much my angel. My only consolation is I know you are with Granny and she will take care of you until we meet again. You brought so much joy into our lives from the moment we first saw you. Your beautiful face and your vibrant personality, quick wit and sense of humor. I thank God for your life. I just wish I could hold you in my arms and clasp your little hands. We always laughed about your still having your little baby dimples on your little hands. There are so many things I want to say and so many things I should have said. I hope you know how much I loved you. I am so grateful for all the time we spent together in recent years. My angel I wish you could have waited just a few more days for me. You were so excited about me arriving on December 4th to spend Christmas and New Year with you. You were loved by so many people. Your beautiful face and smile lit up every room. You were named after your Granny and loved her so much. It gives me some comfort to know you will be resting beside her in beautiful Connemara where you spent such happy times as a child. Sleep in peace my beautiful angel.

I will love you always,
Your Mommy

My beautiful baby sister, Katrina. My heart is shattered and I can't accept that you are gone forever. I remember the day you came home from hospital so clearly. We were all so in love with you and you brought such joy to our family and to every moment of our lives. You were my best friend and we could talk to each other about anything. I cherish so many happy memories and fun times we spent together. I miss your gorgeous smile and your quick wit, your wicked sense of humor, your immense generosity. Finn loved you very much and I am so sorry that you'll never get to meet your new niece and nephew or hold them in your arms. You were loved by so many people and you lit up every room you walked into. There are so many things that I wish I could say to you that I never had a chance to. I would give anything to hug you and hold your hand one more time. My only solace is that you knew how special you were, how beautiful inside and out and how much you were loved. We will never let your name be forgotten, Baby. I love you so much. Sleep, sweet angel.

Your big sister and best friend,
Lisa Palladino
