"Kate was a wonderful friend. She made the best cinnamon rolls there ever were. She was a wonderful conversationalist and had a great sense of humor. She was the only person on the planet that I ever rode an elephant with. I will miss her laugh and her sincereity. She had a remarkable long life just like her mother. I will miss you Kate and I will think of all the laughs we had on our phone calls. My sympathies to Kates family and friends."
