In memory of my best friend of 50 years. We both needed a “sister” and we raised our families together. We took care of each other’s kids as our own. We shared nearly every holiday, motorcycle rides, boating, water skiing, camping, and midnight grocery shopping, to many things to recall. However Cathi you had the gift of writing and humor and I have many of those treasures, none better then the “Italian marble tile” and “Remember when”.
There were a few years we had motor scooters and pity anyone driving on the west side of Loveland and Fort Collins as we were “wild and crazy “ all we needed was a tank of gas”!
The last couple years we drifted apart with our move to Indiana when my husband John fell ill and my hands were so crippled.
Cathi I miss you and your cards and letters, but every time I have a “Cup of Tea” I will remember you forever and beyond.
I am sure you are dancing barefoot with the angels through the wild flowers and your toes in the brook by the tulips. You got to see Jesus first but someday I’ll join you as we visit him.
With love, Virginia

I love you Aunt Cathi! You were always the most sweetest aunt, I was most fortunate to have. I will always cherish your memories. For they were the sweetest a person could have. I thank you for many things... your sweetness, your loving heart, always making me feel so special. We had many adventures together. My childhood was that so special because you were a part of it, From hunting for sea glass and walking on the beach.... talking about boys and how you always thought the best of me. Thank you for believing in me. I know you’re up in heaven holding grandma‘s hand smiling down on all of us. Always know how much I love you! Be sure you give grandma a hug! I love you So much and I will miss you ...until I see you again. All the beautiful colors of this world shine brighter because you were a part of it. I will miss you but I will see you again till then I love you ...always....
