    I am so sorry you lost your friend. Every friend and every moment should be more precious to us. She will live on in the acts of goodness she did and the spirit in which she gave of herself. Thank you for sharing.

    You've been very fortunate in your lifetime to be able to call some really good people, your friend. A couple of your pals brought me to tears, reading their stories of her hugs. Sorry, man ... :(

    I did not know Kati or Jeff well, but just by chance I sat right next to her and across from Jeff at the Salt Lick for the Lone Star Roundup after party . There were a few hundred people in that room but I didn't really notice because I was so focused on talking to Kati and Jeff. I instantly like them both.

    My heart breaks for Jeff and the kids.

    Go find the ones you love and hug them and kiss them. It could all be over tomorrow.

    Thanks for writing a touching tribute about an amazing human being.
    I still can’t believe this is real...Kati can’t be gone. I was supposed to have lunch with her once the kids were back in school. That was the last message I got from her in late July.
    Kati was a beautiful woman, inside and out. Devoted to Jeff, Dixie and Dash.
    A great friend to all who knew her.
    I wish...
    I shoulda...
    I wish I would have made the time, a regret I will carry forever.

    Her shoes will never be filled because she was one of a kind...a true bad ass!
    Love you Kati❤️

    Beautiful words Ryan. As with the rest of the Austun Crew, she meant the world to me. Always there, always knows when to call or text.......just incredibly selfless. I thought I was prepared, but wasn’t. Then I thought I’d was over the worst until reading all this. Man, this one hurts....

    My condolences go out to her family and all of you that knew her, such a loss. Aneurysms suck, my Mom suffered one about 20 yrs ago. Thank the good lord for not taking her from us at that time. The thing is if you don't know you have one they can rupture at any moment, truly scary imho.

    It's amazing that when your friends hurt you hurt also. I didnt have the pleasure of knowing Kati but know you Austinites well enough that she must have been an amazing person. We never know what the future holds for us so stay strong guys and RIP Kati..

    She definately brought goodness into your life and from what it sounds like, into all that was around her. Very sorry for your loss.

  23. Kati and Jeff were two of the first hot rod people I met when my wife and I and our kids we moved here twenty years ago. But they were so much more than that. Salt of the earth. A great pair. It breaks my heart knowing they're apart. My deepest condolences to Jeff, Dash and Dixie. Your mama was good at life. As good at it as anyone I've met. I'm sure she'll give 'em hell upstairs.

    As another dear friend said this week, Kati was an 'effortless bad ass'. Nailed it.
