  10. Katie,
    I’ve known you since you were the little athlete and Alvirne AF JROTC Cadet I carted around to events or arranged and you showed up to help with that big smile. What I don’t remember is if I ever told you my Uncle was a police Chief in New Hope PA until my senior year of high school, or my brother was a Field MP and TSA Supervisor, My cousin was a cop in NJ, My nephew was an MP in the Nat guard, several friends are LEO’s and I’m also a JP that issues warrants. Along with the NAVY side of my family and the fact that you went to school where I was born. You will never be forgotten and I see your smile in some of the kids I drive today. The best was the German Exchange program right after you graduated and picked on Alisha. RIP and fair winds and following seas sailor!
