I am so saddened to hear of Cathie's passing. I was a client for over twenty years. Please accept my deepest condolences. She was a lovely lady. We enjoyed talking about our families and gardening. She truly was a Master Stylist. May your fond memories help ease your pain during this difficult time. May she rest in peace.

We have known Cathie for many years.
She was an exceptionally talented Hair Stylist.
She was always professional, up to date with the latest trends, never late and never absent.
A classy lady indeed.
She was highly respected and loved by us all.

I am so sorry to hear about Cathie. I was a client for over 20 years starting back at Duncan's. We were both from Scotland and I loved my monthly appointment and sharing stories of the old country and our dogs. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to her family who I know she adored.
