    To my dearest Friend, Patty and family! Please accept my deepest and sincere condolences.

    I am still in disbelief. Momma Kat fought long and hard. She enjoyed life to the fullest and always had a smile on her face! I can’t imagine our celebrations without her. Her calling us “Atlanta Housewives”…. She always made me feel welcome and part of the family. I have so much love and respect for this amazing and beautiful lady! Mom… you are truly missed

    Patty… the loss of a parent is never easy. May you find peace in knowing she is no longer in pain. You and the family kept that gorgeous smile on her face. You, Satch, your girls did a fantastic job….it couldn’t have been done any better. She is with God having a grand ole time. She will always surround her loved ones with affection, protection and guidance! I am always here for you all I love you!

    • To Patricia Watkins and Family .. May God give Peace and Comfort in known your mother is at Peace. My Prayers to you all.

    Aunt Kat I can write a book my heart is so heavy and hurt but I know you’re alright and not hurting anymore. My tears are happy tears thinking of all the stuff we’ve been through and all the troubles you kept me out of with my mom but having to face you was like facing her you always kept it real That’s what godmothers are for and I love you for that. We stayed eating that was our thing to do and sleepovers and visiting people in the hospital just to go to the cafeteria to try the food lol the good old days. When I had kids got married the conversations we had meant everything to me and I’ll take that with me for the rest of my life until we meet again. Love you forever ♾ your only Goddaughter/ niece Shareda
