RIP Katie....

It is with MUCH sadness that I post that Katie has passed away. I've never met Katie in real life, but the short time that I have followed her journey fighting cancer has changed my life. She passed away this morning, but I will always remember her smile, her light, her dedication to her family, and the incredible lesson she taught us all- to live life to the fullest and treasure the moments we have with our loved ones. I'll continue praying for her husband and three boys- that they can find peace, comfort, and strength in Katie's memory....

The donation link on my sidebar is still active if you would like to make a donation to Katie's family. Also, there are products HERE on the i{heart}papers website that you can purchase to support Katie's family- all profits go directly to them.

If you are interested in sending a sympathy card to her family, you can send it here:

Also, all of Katie's boys are having birthdays soon. The twins, Nate and Will, will be turning 6 on Nov. 19th and Hunter will be 12 on Dec. 1. Her husband Kevin's birthday is November 17. It would be wonderful if we could shower them with cards for their special day, just like their Mom would do.

Hug your loved ones a little tighter today....

  1. Thank you for posting this, Stephanie. My mind isn't clear enough to put together words as beautifully as you've done just yet. Amazing how someone you don't even know can make such a huge impact. I'm going to be hugging my girls extra tight tonight.
