I am very sorry for your loss. Growing up with Sarah and Marie, Cathy always took great care of friends when we visited. Christmas parties, get togethers and the backyard volleyball were awesome times and Cathy made us feel at home. When I worked at McQuades, she’d always wait in my checkout line so we could talk. I’m very sorry for your loss.
