What a fine woman! Smart. Kind. Interesting. Down to earth. Humble. Easy to talk to.Hard - working. Resilient. I could go on and on, and those that had the honor of getting to know Kate would surely agree. TRULY A CLASS ACT!! Tough, but in a good way. My heart would smile when I would see Kate and Phoebe walking together, as I would pass by her house, on the way to Madawaska. She fought a good fight, and had won my respect and admiration, long before catastrophic illness visited her person. She will be remembered fondly by those who were blessed with the good fortune of having gotten to know her. My heart goes out to you in deep sincerity, and with my most profound condolences. I' m sure tha...t you are proud of her, for there was much to be proud of, on many fronts.Read more

Christine & Al, and all in the Albert family;
So sorry to read of Kathren's passing. How difficult a time this has to be for all of you. I remember you and I, Chris, talking of all those things the two of you did together. You seemed to be so close as you two were involved in so much. Please know that all of you are in the thoughts and prayers of so many. Kathren will be missed by all who knew her. May God bless all of you......
