Dear Katie, I think that we are all still in shock that you are gone. You are going to be missed so much by your Costco family. You always greeted everyone with a warm inviting smile. Whenever I would have the kids shopping with me you always made it a point to talk to them and make them smile or laugh, even when they where being difficult. You will always hold a special place in our hearts. Rest In Peace sweet girl, heaven has gained another angel.

Katie was a bright light. Many times we have enjoyed visiting with her at Chick-fil-A; in spite of her medical challenges, she was always up beat. We also counted on Katie to help us with any questions that we had about the smart phones that she sold us - she had the answers! It was a pleasure to just say hi and pass a few words with Katie wherever we encountered her; she will be missed. May God bless Katie and her family.

Katie was such a great young lady to work with as an usher for the coronation. My daughter and I decided she could run the whole program single-handed.

Katie will always hold a special place in my and my family’s heart. She was one of the first caregivers that helped shape my sons early development at Braddock Street daycare. She was always bubbly and kind and I trusted that my son was in good hands with her. We enjoyed keeping touch in our trips to Costco and she loved watching my kids grow. She was a beautiful soul and will be dearly missed.

My deepest sympathies go out to the Chapman family. Katie was a very smart and sweet woman. I grew up with Katie through middle and high school and still remember how she brightened up a room with her whitty ways. We sat beside each other in freshman science and were yearbook editor’s in middle school. Fly high sweet angel, you will never be forgotten.

Memories are everything and I have so many great ones with Katie. She was such a big influence in my early years after high school and I'm not sure what I would have done without a friend like her in my life. Life has gotten busy since then and we went our separate ways but I will never forget your beautiful smiling face and positive look on life. You were always so strong and will be greatly missed. Thoughts and prayers for your family through this difficult time.
