    I'm so sorry to hear of my Aunt Katie's passing. She was so sweet and loving. Growing up my Mom would always say to me "You remind me so much of your Aunt Katie"
    I always enjoy looking back on all the pictures of the Shaws during the late 70's that my Mom passed down to me. I will treasure them.
    The world lost a truly beautiful soul

    My dear sister Kathleen...
    Katie was kind and gentle, my memory of my two sisters, recently standing in the ocean, knee deep holding hands talking the afternoon away.
    Bob taking the family to Galveston Bay, on that bright sunny day. Katie told me how she adored and loved her brothers.
    The many hours she spent at Animal Rescue Shelter's, bearing gifts and coming home with the one that needed love the most.
    Katie, learning from you I have become a kinder and more compassionate person.
    Bruce Shaw
    (Your loving brother)

    Dear Bob, BJ and Erica, I am so very sorry for the loss of your wife and mom. Katie was a beautiful lady with a gentle soul. Katie was a strong woman and an inspiration to many. She kept my brother happy for many years. I am glad she does not have to fight for her life any more. Cherish all the great memories and talk to her everyday. Carry on her love for animals forever. I so want to be there with all of you. Hugs and love from Maine. Sincerely, Paula

    This sudden passing of Katie is a lost to all on this earth.
    Katie had a unconditional love for all, even people she did not know that she just met.
    Her love of life and animals just made her one of the strongest ladies I ever knew.
    I will miss my sister dearly as will all those blessed to have known her.
