LaToya posted the caption with a picture of herself and the elegant Katherine, who looked radiant as she donned on a purple skirt suit, which she accessorized with pearls.
Amazingly, Katherine and her son Jackie both share the same birthday. And her son Tito wished both his mother and brother a happy birthday saying: "Wishing my precious Mother and older brother Jackie lots of love, peace, happiness, and good health! ???????."
She was with him all the way even after his death.
Just like his brother, Jackie also shared a picture of himself and his mother admitting that he was blessed to share the same birth date with her.
