Miss Katy was a beloved employee of North Shore Academy of Gymnastics for 20 years. During her time there her love and kindness influenced the lives of many people, from children and their parents to her peers and coworkers. Even those who only ever attended an annual birthday party were impacted enough to seek her presence when visiting the gym. I was personally impacted by the incredible closeness she shared with her daughters, but also her faithfulness as a friend and member of the community. When Katy gave you her love it was wholly and without is a warmth that I hold onto when faced with the pain of losing her. She is and will always be unforgettable to me. Some of my favorite memories include, the sleepovers at her house with Karly and Abby, the way she liked her coffee flavored, and how she would dance when she walked out into the gym and it was the just two of us...she may not be here but she will be with me always.

I felt so sad to hear my brother Marcos that Katy had pass away that I thought I should write these words of remembrance. I hope this words would help her lovely family to this hard moments. I will always be thankfull to her and her family letting me share part of their family time with me when I was a teenager visiting the USA. Thanks to all of them it was a experience I will never forgtet. Katy made all possible to make me feel like at home, and always fun. Cheerful, positive, with a big smile in her face, I will always remember her this way. I wish I could give her family a big and warm hug this days. Blas.
