Mary Katherine was such a sweet lady and wonderful best friend to my sister Dorothy Maltese Wakim. I remember them dragging me (mother made her) to movies and shopping, etc. She always had a smile and a good friend to me. I know that you are having a wonderful reunion with Dorothy, Betty Bishop and all of your family in heaven! Rest in peace. sorry for your loss Yvonne, you are in my prayers.
