I just have no words for how I am feeling. Just a big empty spot that used to be filled with 16 years. Rest in heaven you will be missed.

I bowled with Cathy years ago and had a chance meeting with her at Walmart last week. We had a wonderful conversation about things in our lives and wanted to get together sometime soon. I am so saddened by this news. My prayers and condolences go to Cathy's family. She was a treasure and was loved by all who knew her.

When I was a new kid in fifth grade, Cathy was one of my kindest new friends. She was always patient and caring. Much love and peace wished in your healing.

It's been years since I have seen Cathy. We had talked about getting together, unfortunately we never did. Such a sweet and kind lady. My condolences to all her family and friends.
