An eager learner, we called her. One of those “Oooh! Oooh! Pick me!” kind of kids in the classroom.
Eager to be the first to experience, to see, to know . . . anything.
Eager to love—always free to share hugs and affection with those she loves.
Eager to run ahead.
Eager to work hard.
Eager to please us, her parents.
Eager to be a great sister.
Eager to be goofy.
Eager to be a friend.
Eager to be born.
Nineteen years ago today Kate eagerly arrived . . . three weeks early.
We love you, Kate!
