I am a person of words, and I have tried to get my mind around your passing, but I cannot. I feel like I'm an actor in a play right now, playing a part the best I can. When I let the realization in that you're gone, I break down and get extremely sad, and then "push" the emotions out so I can act and put on a front again. Then I remember something you did (like showing up at

I am Denise Currington's brother. I was informed of Katie's struggles throughout these past two years and I am very sorry for the loss of her to your family. I can say nothing else but I am very sorry.

Katie, you were that spark in life that will never go out. You lived your life and lost your life on your terms, with dignity and grace. You were concerned about your family all during your illness, not wanting to leave them or miss them. God has you close to Him now and you will be reunited with your family when He sees fit. You always had that sparkle in your eye and smile on your face that made you

"Well done My good and faithful servant. Come and share your Father's joy." Rest in Peace Katie.
You and your family have been such an example of perseverance and love.
I am so blessed to have The Laramie's as a piece in the puzzle of my life.
Peace and love, Karen

Brian, Kelly, & Scott,
Thank you for allowing me to be part of your journey at the end of Katie's life. It was a pleasure to know Katie and to work on some of her "last wishes." I hope you will all allow me to be a part of this new journey. I also hope you can give yourselves credit for the love and care you provided to Katie and to one another. May God comfort you in your grief.

I am happy that I am your aunt sandy,happy that all of you are who you are.
Katie and her family are an inspiration to all of us. The love and care shared
is what family is about and "Our Sweet Katie Girl" and her family let all us be
a part of their life. Thousands of people, well wishers, prayer warriors and
those that read the love and felt the oneness of this family. So many people
from different Churchs, neighbors, strangers that wanted

Katie was the type of person that others were easily drawn to. She had a wonderful smile and infectious laugh that would instantly light up the room. I was intrigued and amazed at her thirst for knowledge but was even more intrigued with her abilities as a "driveway mechanic". She wanted to "do-it-herself".....and she did!!! At several family functions, she and my father would talk about fixing cars and she would take those conversations and put them to use.

Unfortunately I only met Katie once and I think she and Scott were about six months old. Soon after I moved to Florida and I lost touch with Kelly and Brian, so glad to be reunited with them. I went on Katie's journey with her from afar and have been amazed many times over with the strength and courage she has shown this last year and a half. It was a journey that I wish that nobody had to take,

Katie, You were the kind of Niece every Aunt should have and I was very lucky to have You and a Nephew like Scott. You were always happy lucky kind of kid. Never wanted to sit around always wanted to do something, when you stayed with me we always found something to do from crafting, cooking, etc. I couldn't ask for a better Niece and Nephew to take care of, they made me feel young. Kate will always have a

I knew Katie since middle school. She always had a way of making everyone smile and laugh and was nice to everyone. If she saw that you were having a bad day, she would find a way to get you to smile and be happy. She was always happy and got along with everyone and treated everyone like family. We all love you and miss you Katie
