Dear Family of Katherine Dill Palmer:
While I didn't know Katherine personally, I am a big fan of the Dill/Wine family, so I feel for you at this time of your loss. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are will you as you navigate the challenges brought on by the public health issues while needing to be together to celebrate Katherine. From her notice, it is obvious that she was quite a light for the world and lived large. I will hold you in my heart and will keep Fred in my prayers. Jesus is Katherine's Good Shepherd - and ours as well. She is in wonderful hands.

Terrie Sternberg (friend of Mary Ann and David Wine)

Fred, I'm so sorry to hear about Katherine. Now, I'm REALLY sorry I missed that luncheon a while back. We pretty much had something to say to each other whenever I saw her at the pool. And I often picked up on (and appreciated) her wry wit. Grieve, my friend, but spend most of your time remembering what made your marriage to her special.
