Dear Doug, Brian & Carly. We are so saddened by the passing of Kate - way too soon. We were privileged to know Kate for over forty years & appreciated all that she shared with us - her sense of humour, her wisdom, her kindness, her delicious meals & most importantly her zest for life. May you know that Kate loved you with her whole being. With fond memories of time spent with all of you, Pauline & Harold
