7: Beloved Kate, These past few months have been a roller coaster, well, just the initial, slow, clacking to the top. I imagine you'd never make me angry to force the cars down so the roller coaster would just stop at the top. Perhaps it's not a roller coaster. Perhaps it's an auto with no destination and each scenic route along the way was a moment which you've made me laugh out loud, and I the same. Let's not run out of gas. Lmao..Wants some more cheese with this goodbye? Yours Truly, Jon Campos PS, Don't ever work for Fox News... Or you sleep with fishes.

12: Dear Katie, Its been so much fun being able to work with you! You brighten up my day each time I see you at work and loved having you as the 2 at Loma. You kicked so much ass administratively and were always doing your job the best you could. It will be impossible to ever replace you and I will miss you sooooooo much. J You were invaluable to Loma and your staff. With a leader like you we could all do our best and hold ourselves to a higher standard. I wish you the best with all your endeavors and look forward to hitting the bars with you. Holla at your boy! Love, Gare Bear.
13: Katie I miss you already! Please don't leave! :( I don't care that its inappropriate...but I know that you're moving on to bigger and better things and I'm really really REALLY happy for you! Thank you for being such a blessing to work with! And I wouldn't have chosen anyone else to get my winner winner pins with :) I love you Katie! Come back and visit us next Summer ok? Ok! - Justin
16: Katie, Loma isn't going to be the same without you around. I am sad to see you go but excited to see you reap the rewards of all your hard work in school. Thank you for being so much more than just an awesome boss to me; you have been an amazing friend, supportive, you always gave me a realistic perspective on things and I could not ask for more from a boss or a friend! It's time to hang up your red shorts and go out into the real world! I love you and good luck in all of your endeavors. If you think we won't see each other in the very near future, you're wrong. Love, Cammy
20: Katie, I am so glad that i got the opportunity to work with you this summer. You've been an amazing boss and I couldn't imagine what summer would've been like without you. I remember when I first got hired, you and Trox told us this would be the best job we ever have. I truly feel that it is. And I feel like it is because of the wonderful people you get to work with and grow to love, people like you who make the experience completely worthwhile. I feel like I've become a better lifeguard because of you, so thank you. I wish you the best of luck in your future. And you better come back and visit us next summer! :) Love, Annalise
21: Dearest Katie, I remember the first time I trained with you and I was SO intimidated. You seemed like one of those girls who really had her stuff together and knew everything there was to know about lifeguarding. Well, I later found all that to be true and more. You also have a wonderful heart and you became one of my closest friends at this job. All of our inside jokes will never be forgotten, "huge bitch, Shadow Cliff punishment, define...., on a scale of professional to not, creepadactyl" and many more. You made my first years at Loma so special, late night talks at the station or at our cars and Friday hikes in the hills, and I will not be forgetting you my love. I can't wait to see what you make of your life because you have the potential to do so much. I love you Katie and Loma won't be the same without you! Love, Kjersten, KJ, Little Jensen, or Cammy, which you so often like to call me:)
24: Dear Katie, You are the best boss that anyone could ever ask for. You are a beautiful person both inside and out I know that I can come to you for anything in the world. I know for a fact that I will miss you so much next year when you are gone. I am going to really miss you a lot Katie. I know you will do great in life! With all my heart Love, Samantha Lucky
25: Katie Dearest:) You are such an awesome, beautiful person and I feel so privileged to have had the whole summer to get to know you. This year would have been nowhere near the same without you. You are awesome to joke with, as well as learn from and I couldn’t have asked for a better 2:), SUPER TWO ACTUALLY! I wish you the best in whatever path you travel down and I’m so glad I have had the chance to be a part of your life. Good Luck, have fun, invite me to your wedding and stay in touch:) Love you always Paige Lange P.S. I wouldn’t have got the super tot award if you didn’t show me how to be ridiculous:) you really have made me a better swim instructor and lifeguard.

She has been a dedicated public servant and advocate of drowning prevention with the Park District. Please congratulate her.
28: Dear Katie, For the past five years you have been more than just a coworker or a boss to me. You have been a great friend. I know I can come to you with anything and you will be there ready to listen and ready to give amazing advice. From our late talks after lessons to our venting spurts, we have always been there for each other. I have been watching you and learning from you trying to figure out how you do what you do. I have learned so much and although I will never be able to fill your shoes I will use everything you taught me to keep your work going. I am going to miss you so much. This summer has been a journey; it has definitely made us much closer. I know you will do great in whatever you do. Whoever you work for will never be the same once they get a dose of the amazing Katie. Thank you for all of the amazing things you have done for me, I will never forget you. You are a true inspiration. I love you!! Emily
29: Dear Katie, Loma won't be the same without you. Thank you so much for all of the work that you have done. You will always be the secret three. I wanted to thank you for giving me all of the opportunities that you gave me. You picked me to train over some people who had been leaders before. I appreciate your training in programs and your tips on being a leader. Even though you will be doing bigger and better things you need to come back and visit a lot. Love, Josh
