Kate is Cathryn’s niece, sister Anne’s daughter, the youngest of the 9 Rice grandchildren and the last to leave her teen years behind. She’s a sophomore at Texas A&M University. We hope you have a wonderful day, Kate! How does it make you feel, Dad and Mom, to have 9 grandchildren all of whom have entered their third (or fourth) decade of life??? The birthday girl is the one on the right, and her other Texas Rice-grandchild girl cousin, Stephanie Shaffer is on the left, photo taken at cousin Jeff’s wedding last summer.
