Dear Family,
During this time of sorrow, may you find comfort in God's promise that he is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18. May happy memories of Katherine Sue Hess be with you always.

Katherine and I were 1st cousins and we shared the same birthday which was always special to me. I am so thankful that our family taught us about love, kindness, and family values but most of all about the love of JESUS CHRIST! In the past few weeks I could see a change in Katherine as she had accepted JESUS into heart and for that I am so thankful! I love you Katherine and you will be forever missed here but I know that you are so happy with all our loved ones that have gone on before and how amazing it must be to see JESUS with outstretched arms welcoming you home!đź’–
