A touching and emotional ceremoney was held Sunday afternoon at Seattle Center's Fisher Pavilion to celebrate the life of longtime KOMO-TV anchor Kathi Goertzen.

At the service, Goertzen's daughter Andrea said of her mother, "My mom believed that there was a reason for everything, a reason why that she was handed this disease, a reason why she faced it the way that she did. She used her brain tumors as a way to inspire, she inspired me by facing her illness head on, and she never hid."

Watch a tribute from KING 5's Jean Enersen.
