Congratulations Kate! While I don't have a personal relationship with you outside of the musical/dance events I attend, you have always greeted me (and many others no doubt) as a good friend.
I'm not sure I've ever seen you without a smile on your face! Thank you for being such an open and welcoming person. It has always made a difference.
I have enjoyed you so much through your music. I played (tuba) in Roaring Jelly for several years, and there was nothing better than switching energy and key as we would launch into one of your compositions. Thank you for thrilling me and so many others with your kindness and many musical talents over the years! Congrats again on this award for which you are so deserving. I look forward to dancing to your music for many years to come!
