Dear Aunt Kate, We thought of you today, but that is nothing new. We thought of you yesterday and days before that too. We think of you in silence, we often speak your name. All we have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which we’ll never part. God has you in his arms, we have you in our heart. Our deepest condolences to the entire family. 🙏🏻 Love Always, David & Lisa Shriver
