So sad to hear of Cathy’s passing. Cathy’s parents and my parents, Emmie and Hunter McDonald were best friends. I have such fond memories of the Foote family and always felt such a closeness to them. I hope they are all having a joyous reunion with Cathy in Heaven. My prayers of comfort are for her boys

I have been friends with Cathy, Doug, and her mom and dad since 1971. Cathy and I went to St. Cecilia high school. This was when “bussing” was implemented in Nashville. I would have been at Hillsboro high school, she would have been at Hillwood high school— but we met at at this Catholic school, she a freshman, I am a junior— and neither of us a “catholic”— We didn’t fit the typical mold for this catholic school— so we kinda got away with stuff, only b/c we didn’t know better. We loved the same music, her love for Leon Russell was vibrant— as was her love for her brother and her mom and dad— Every Christmas Day, I was welcomed into their traditional Lunch, with mimosas and love, and just the spirit of family and God— her mother and father were the most precious two people I had ever encountered as a teenager— they loved their two children and their friends— Cathy moved away her sophomore year and I didn’t see her until the day she was to be married to Walter— it was as if time stood still, I was with her while she dressed for her wedding and we took up from we we left off before her departure— Cathy was so happy and so excited and she wanted me by her side— btw, her other best friend is my husband, Jody, who has wonderful memories of Cathy and Doug. I love u sweet girl, you will be missed, but your spirit will live on in all who you knew. I love you
