You were/are an American icon. A treasure. Soooooo sad.

Precious Katy. With the heaviest heart, I send love and prayers to all of the Brosnahans and Spades. I have the sweetest memories of Katy, growing up in KC. I was thrilled to watch her become an extraordinary success. May God shower you all with His grace and blessings. May He shine light on her gorgeous soul.

RIH my Darling. I never got the chance to meet you in person however, it seems I knew you well. After receiving my first Kate Spade bag I just knew you were a very delightful person. I went out and bought a huge bag of caramels to pass out to every one I encountered, and I will continue to do so in your legacy. May your family and friends receive peace and privacy during this time. Love you forever. Shae ~ 1231Essentials

RIP Kate Spade. I did not know you but your passing made me sad. I went home after work and pulled out my beautiful black Italian leather clutch I just received for my birthday. You certainly had the vision to create beautiful accessories. Class act. Rest In Peace forever.

Prayers for your family, especially your little girl.
I always loved your purses but never purchased one. I do have Glasses and a beautiful case.

Kate Spade will never be forgotten.

Dearly Loved

You are finally at peace and though you are no longer here your good name lives on. Oh how I wish you might have found your way out of that heavy place but the pain was more than you could bear. God rest your soul in His loving arms. Thank you Lord for blessing us with Kate. Her spirit lives on in each of us! You are loved! RIP ❤

Love you Kate

I look at my beautiful watch much differently since you passed. I wish time would just rewind so you would be back with us.
As I look at the beautiful glasses klinking with sparkling bubbles and the word Cheers I want to believe you made that with me in mind. I choose you to be my Mood Swing Wines angel I just wish we could have had a second glass together!
Cheers and love,

"I feel like I knew you!" I loved your brand and am proud to be a fan of Kate Spade.... May God be with you. Until later, may you rest in peace. My first handbag purchase was for my mother as a gift. It was a pretty large amount including a wallet as well. A few years later, I finally bought myself a handbag/wallet(s) and ironically it was only 2-weeks before your death.
