Kate was a very Special friend to me, we met at the ROOT BEER stand, she was a car hop and I was working inside cooking hamburgers. That was 1967. We both went to work for Federal Screw Works in Sept, 1967. Kate & Jack became very close friends of Marion & myself. We shared a lot of good times together. Vacations, Ford Drag Club, CB Parties, Sharing holidays with our families & friends. Kate & Jack is very sadly missed by me and my family. They were great people to know. RIP KATE 'Love' Marie
