So sorry to read about Katherine in the Bamberg SC local paper. She and I where classmates all through school graduating in 1974 from Bamberg-Ehrhardt High school.I had not seen her since our 30 year reunion in 2004. She was always very friendly and such a pleasure to be around. I will pass the word to the class members that I see and am sure it will be a sad occasion for them as well.
