    Katie was a great friend and colleague to my mother Dora. The world is a lesser place now that she’s gone
    There was no one better at giving shots and
    She will be missed. Rest In Peace Katie

    Sending prayers to the family of Katie. She was more than a friend to my mom Dora, they were more like sisters. She was truly an amazing person.
