Wow, I was just sitting here today and Katie poped into my head. It's hard to believe that its been a little over three years since that beautiful young lady passed. God bless! My heart still goes out to her mom, Aunt Lisa, and Sam, as well as all the rest of her family. Looking back at everything today still hurts. Maybe not as much as it did the day it happened, but non-the-less, it still hurts. To all of those who started ugly rumors about her mother, I can't imagin the disapointment you felt or fell now to know the truth. Shame on you all! Now rest in peace beautiful Katie and know that your still in many peoples thoughts, prayers, and memories!

Thank u David for being her voice. She needs it. Still to the day i think about her everyday like i was finding out her passing fo the first time. i too have to agree with you. that if anyone truly knew Katie and her mother they knew the situation and all the fighting. but I know that if my daughter/son were trapped in a burning room i would kill myself trying to get to them like a devoted mother did down here. Rest in piece KATIE LAPRADD you are truly missed and are forever in our hearts. Thank you for always being there when we needed you, sry i couldnt be there to save you. with all the love i can give. I cant believe its been almost five years. i hope your having fun jumping in all the puddles you can find and building the tallest snowmen. i'll always remember my neon. even though i never got to drive it. And to everyone who ever knew Katie we were blessed werent we? and to all those who never got the chance she was a life changer for sure but an angel in disguise.
