Cathie made my week every week. Seeing her coming down my hallway brightened me up no matter how bad my mood was. She just had that naturally about her. She had a great sense of humor and an all around wonderful personality. I got many words of great advice from her and lots of praise in the 2 years that I knew her. I always waited for her every week knowing when she would be coming, when she didn&t come this week I knew something wasn&t right. When I heard of the news it was devastating. Then I remembered what a great spirit she was. She will be smiling down on every person she touched in her life and spending precious time with already passed family who she talked to greatly about. I know Cathie felt very blessed to have had those in her life that she did. I believe officiating her nieces wedding was the highlight of the last year of her life. She was so excited when she returned, holding pictures and talking about the beautiful bride and ceremony. She truly had a heart of gold and I will miss seeing her beautiful face every week. Even if it isn&t the family type of love and even if it&s someone you see once a week, it can touch you so deeply that you will remember that person and their words for the rest of their life. Cathie is that to me and I loved her as if she were family. RIP Cathie.

Cathie was one of the dearest and kindest friends I had to honor to have. She always had a smile and I always looked forward to every minute I could spend with her. She will be missed by everyone who had the
pleasure to know her. My love and prayers are with all her family and friends.
