    I’m so sorry to hear of Cathy passing. She was loved by so many people and will be greatly missed by many. She wasn’t able to be a Mother on Earth, but in Heaven she will be able to be a mom to her children, her daughter Athena, and her son Clint. May you be happy and pain free. See ya on the flip side. Luv ya always Tami

    Dear Kurt, our hearts go out to you. I am so sorry for your loss. I had no idea that she was ill. She was always so upbeat and kind.

  4. Marrci Walters Says:

    I worked with Cathy for many years. After that we stayed in touch. Even though Cathy struggled with illness, she always had a great spirit. Her love for animals (and dolphins) was so touching. We have a lot in common in that area. Curt, Cathy could not have had a better, stronger or more loving man by her side to help her through this journey. My condolences to you and your family.
