    A guy couldn’t ask for a better sister than Kate Lux. I’m not speaking just for myself. I’m speaking for all five of Kate’s brothers, the Finn boys–Eddie, Joe, Fred, Earl, and Johnny. She took good care of all of us! She was especially loving and patient with me when I needed it the most. She was born to do what she did, and she did it exceedingly well. Thank you, Jesus, for Kate! Our love to Ann and Louise and their families.

    Such a wonderful strong woman, loved by all. I know now where Louise and ReNea get their strength from. Even after her husband died, she forged on with great resolve. My thoughts are with Ann, Louise, Butch, ReNea, Brent and the rest of the family, for this great loss. She was one tough lady with immense fortitude. Love and prayers to all.
