I am so sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you all. It is diffucult to understand God's plan for us all,especially when he calls his children to him at such a young age.

I was privileged to have briefly consulted with Kate at Northland Electrical Services. Her professional competency and devotion to her family and company was immediately apparent. She will be greatly missed, but her work and love will remain as a lasting legacy. We have all been blessed to know her. Corey and Will may her love, words and deeds wrap you in a blanket of comfort.
