edit: our parent tribute to katie that was read on graduaton night.

Katie Katitus

Smart, determined, devoted.

Watching you grow up has been a wonderful experience that we will cherish forever.

You have an adventurous spirit and a wonderful sense of humor that make you fun to be around.

Your determination and commitment to volleyball was a source of pride and enjoyment for us. We will miss watching you play.

Listening to you play piano will always be a fond memory for us.

To round out your beautiful personality you were also given the gift of devotion. To see the look on your face when someone you care about is unjustly treated is to know that that person has a strong ally who can and will stick up for them.

To see you interact with young children is very heartwarming. You communicate with them on a personal level and it is apparent that they admire you.

Your strong will, self-assurance, and intelligence make you someone who will lead a full and successful life on whatever path you choose.

You have become a beautiful young lady and we love you very much!

“Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
