    Dear Kirk and family, We are so sorry for your loss. Aunt Katie made coming to Hillsboro so much fun when Daddy would bring us to visit from FL. It was like having our own Aunt Bee right there in the middle of Hillsboro, ND., only better! May God comfort you and give you strength during this time. Blessing to you all.

    Kirk, I am so very sorry about the loss of your mother. She was such a wonderful woman, and I will never forget her! She was always very kind, and she always had a smile on her face! And I will always remember when we came trick-or-treating — she had homemade Rice Krispie bars! I am sure that this is a very difficult loss for you. My thoughts and my prayers are with you. May the cherished memories of your mother give you comfort. Kathleen (Diehl) Laverdiere
