    Katie isn't in pain anymore. She can stand on her own two feet. She can laugh & sing.
    Katie can dance. Katie can run again!

    KATIE CAN FLY!!!

    In lieu of flowers and the ability to get down to her funeral, Darren and I will be making a donation to Make A Wish in Katie's name. I wish we could make it to the funeral. Thank you Joe for reposting Albin's post. Reading it gave me a huge lump in my throat, but I needed to hear that Katie passed peacefully.

    God Bless Katie and the Johnson family.

    I just got home. I would've been home late last night but I had to stop in VA to crash for a few hours because I was physically and mentally wiped out.

    It was a beautiful service. Everything about the day said Katie. From the melody of "SpongeBob Square Pants" before the service started, to the look in everyone's eyes as they said goodbye in their own way. The Reverend performed an outstanding sermon. Knowing that Katie loved to pinch people's noses and say "Honk", he left us all with a mental image of Katie tweaking the noses of the Apostles as she was welcomed into Heaven. I never want to forget that image.

    When they played Jay's tribute video, there wasn't a dry eye to be found. While the day was tragic, it was also magical. It is something that I will carry with my for the rest of my life.

    I'm glad to hear that Katie received such a beautiful reception. She was definitely deserving of it, and the video was just a tear-jerker. I can only imagine how wrecked you must be right now Joe.
