Thank you to everyone in Aunt Cathy’s BC family including her dear friends. She was so well loved and cared for by you. She was a remarkable woman-loved by so many and will be missed dearly. Thank you also for taking care of my mom, Anne on all of her visits and this, the most difficult one. Thank you. Rest in peace Aunt Cathy-enjoy some black licorice and walks on the beaches of heaven with Grandpa.
