Sitting here pondering on moments spent with Cathryn move me to graving more time with her. My most angelic friend , she is a beautiful soul with no end of giving.
I remember her open heart, sharing, always caring, & always encouraging.
In my most intense experiences she open her door to me, dressed me in her own pj's and joined me on a nice cozy bed on the couch. She later gave me furniture and dishes for my new beginnings. Then there was the time of a really bad hair coloring and hair cut; it was a day before a vacation . Gosh, what was I going to do? She put some makeup on me, moved the short bangs on my face and shifted my hair, complimented me and took photos. Her words of encouragement had me back up and ready to take on the journey. She's is amazing!
I will always remember how she'd overcome her own needs & pain to give to others.
My earth angel friend Is dearly missed. One more visit with Cathryn would be my wish, one more day with Cathryn.

Cat has been front and center at so many of my shows for so many years, I cannot count them. She was a super-fan of live music, and was loved by all she came in contact with, and will be missed by so many in the music business. As soon as the Sunday before she passed, she was at our Ronstadt tribute band's show at Tulalip Casino, and was also at our very first show 7.5 years ago! While I believe she attended more bands than mine, I will always think of her as OUR fan. Miss you, Cat. Whenever there is an empty chair down in front, I'll always put you in it. Thank you for your smiling presence for so many years.
