She recently marked her anniversary with her late husband

In a candid interview with People last year, Katie bravely spoke about Jay's final days. "I was so worried about letting go of hope, because I didn't want Jay to spend whatever time he had left just waiting to die," she shared.

"I think it takes extraordinary courage to be able to face death, and I think I was too scared, honestly."

On the lasting impact of their time together, Katie poignantly added: "I understand the fragility of life in a way that will always be with me. It also makes me realize the futility of being mad at somebody, of petty arguments. I always think about what David Cassidy said on his deathbed: 'So much wasted time.'"
