I was blessed to know such an amazing, strong, kind, and loving woman. To watch Cathy with her kids, grandchildren & husband is what true love and family is about. Any time you seen Cathy and said.. hi, how are you? She would always say.. “FANTASTIC!” 😊. Cathy was so amazing to my daughter and always made her feel special. I will cherish the talks & laughs sitting at Fannie’s table & under the grapevine. Robin, Jimmy sr, Jimmy jr, Lexi & Xuilie... I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts & prayers. Love you. Kelly.
