Nicki and Maria I’m so sorry for your loss of your wonderful mom. It was a privilege to know Cathie for over 4o years. She was a wonderful friend and I miss her every day. She always lifted you up and never complained about being ill. She loved you both with all her heart and her angel babies kept her going. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely Diane

Cathie was such an amazing woman....so strong, positive and kind despite all the struggles and pain she was going through. I was so inspired by her faith and positivity! She was always such a joy to be with! I know, without a doubt, that she is with the angels, who she always spoke about...without any more pain and suffering! She truly deserves this peace and joy! God bless her and her family!
