As some of you know, I was keeping tabs on Little Katie and planned on giving half of the proceeds from our raffle and bake sale at Halloween to the Kisses for Katie Fund. This is from TFN today. Final Kisses For Katie Posted By Philip on August 10, 2005 Many were familiar with 501st founders Albin Johnson daughter Katie's battle with cancer. This from Kathy Johnson today: Hi all, This is Kathy. I'm writing to inform you all that Katie has beaten her battle with Cancer. Katie passed away at 5:20pm Today. Myself Al and Allie are trying to hold it together as best we can. We would appreciate no phone calls for a few days. Katie's Funeral will be at 4:00pm on Friday at Riverland Hills Baptist Church here in Columbia. On behalf of myself and the entire family thank you for all you support and prayers. Please keep Al and Allie in your prayers as well as Katie's mother and step father. Al will be intouch soon. Our most heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the Johnsons. You can read more about Katie here: Read more about it here: www.ForKatie.org and here www.Heartofanempire.com. You can also read Jay from Heart Of An Empire's blog. I'm still planning on donating the money to this cause as the Johnsons no doubt still have many medical and now, funeral expenses to pay. It's a sad day for the members of the 501st and Fan Force.
