Remembering Navy Yard shooting victim Kathy Gaarde

We feel it's essential to remember those whose lives were lost in the Washington Navy Yard shooting. We want to look back at the people they were, and the lives they lived. Kathy Gaarde was 62 and lived in Woodbridge, Virginia. Her husband describes her as a devoted daughter who took care of her aging mother, until her death last year at the age of 94. Kathy was also a big hockey fan and had season tickets for the Washington Capitals. Anderson spoke with Kathy's husband Douglass and their daughter Jessica.

    I thought the interview was well done. It helped prepare me before I was to visit them. You see, I was with Kathy before she passed away. I visited with the family yesterday for the first time,the 18th, to share that she did not pass away without a friend near her. Besides thanking you for the interview, I wanted you to know what a hero she was. Even though she was shot, in pain, and bleeding, when I asked her to be strong and quiet for both of us, so the shooter would not come back,she did. She was strong and held on as long as she could. Kathy Gaarde is my hero, and will be missed.
