Kaitlyn may be gone, but never forgotten

On Dec. 17 last year, we lost a young citizen of Saratoga, Kaitlyn Langstaff. Kaitlyn touched many of our hearts personally. Her disease took her eyesight, her voice, her ability to walk, but not her spirit or her persistence. She was a true fighter. With all that she was going through, she, her parents, and her school district worked hard to keep her out of the hospital, close to friends and family, and in school as many days as possible. If my children could grow up with half the persistence that Kaitlyn had, I would feel truly blessed.

Kaitlyn is gone from our sight, but I know she knows, and I want her family to know, that she will never be forgotten by many of us in Saratoga.
