I know my wife and I didnt get to know you as well as we had wanted to before you took off to pursue your dream of being in the MMA's, we missed you when you left especially my wife, you two were like 2 peas in a pod, hot headed and didnt take no crap! But you said not long after meeting you that you wanted more out of the life you had in marked tree, you wanted to become somebody, well you accomplished that goal in your life at such a young age that most people never accomplish. We are so proud that you did what you sought out to do. I just wish we would have had one last time to have had the chance to say our good byes, before this goodbye Katy. I dont think anybody was prepared for this day of morn over your loss. You are deeply missed by us as well as many, many fans, freinds and family! We love you Katy and will see you again soon, I count on it! R.I.P girl!
