Dedicated she was! I remember Catherine as a warm, loving woman who was always looking after everybody. I remember the times Paul and I came for coffee with home backed cake on Sunday Mornings in your house in Scheveningen, The Netherlands. I will treasure these memories and wish all her family strength to cope with this loss.

These photos confirm Catherine’s love for her life and her kindness toward loved ones and strangers alike. From the pyramids in Egypt to the beaches in Honolulu to cuddle time with Everett, her life was beyond full. She will be so missed. My condolences to the whole family. I cannot imagine the void that you are all experiencing. May you take comfort in knowing that her abounding love is eternal. Bob, I am so sorry for the loss of your soul mate.
