She is my twin sister from a different mother.  I met Kathe over 19 years ago.  We were (and are) teachers in the same school.  She was my friend from day one.
There are so many things I like and adore about Kathe.  Here's my list:
1.  She is fiercely loyal.
2.  We lived through the deaths of both sets of parents.  I will forever remember being with her at her mother's side when she passed away.  I hope she knows how much that meant to me to be there.
3.  She laughs at my jokes.  She really does get me.
4.  She is an amazing mother.  She reminds me of my mom in the way she defends and loves her kids.  They can do no wrong.  (That is a good thing Kathe, just in case you ever read this:)  )
5.  She is the cutest grandma.  Her grandkids are the luckiest children ever.  She would give her life for them I'm sure.  She spends a lot of money on them.  It cracks me up.  She has 11 of them.  Wow!
6.  This cracks me up about Kathe...she fights getting older harder than anything else.  She really doesn't need to worry about that.  She is beautiful.  She will be beautiful until she is 92...or older.
7.  She loves my girls.  Well, really, who doesn't?
8.  She swears (at least once a day)
9.  She keeps me on the straight and narrow...even with all that swearing!  She makes me want to be a better person (corny I know) but she really does. 
And finally... 
10.  She'll always be 10 years older than me (thank goodness)
