A prayer for you all. We loved 'Omie' or 'Mama Kate' dearly. We took her in as she took us in as one another's extended family. Often times she'd say that she didn't know what she did to deserve us and that we were sent by God. How we look at it, she was just as a blessing to us in turn! We'll miss her teaching us French terms, her love for dogs and foods, her sharing stories about her nursing days and singing in the choir, her laugh and her smile! Gone from earth but cherished in our hearts...Carol, Shantel, Tarika, Annie and Addie Hodges
