Dear Jim, Cecilia, Chris, Linda, Donald, Hailie, Richard and all your beautiful children,
Your mom, my aunt, was a very wonderful woman. Aunt Kay was so giving and caring to everyone she met. As my aunt, she always went out of her way to watch out for me. I enjoyed spending time at your house and gladly volunteered for babysitting duties whenever she and uncle Walter wanted to go out for the night.
It was aunt Kay who called Holy Name of Mary Rectory to get me into the Altar Boys. She went out of her way to come to my track meets or choral concerts, and for that I will always be grateful. Your mom always openly defended me when her sister, my mom was upset with me.
Jimmy, neither of your parents knew that I used to take you to the Valley Stream pool parking lot to teach you how to drive. I made all of you boys come with me to the Valley Stream Theater to watch those old Disney movies. Those were great times.
Your mom and dad were a big part of my life, but especially your mom. We will always joke about "making nice for nanny." But nevertheless, she was a great woman.
I pray that she is finally at peace and sharing time with uncle Walter in heaven.
May eternal rest be granted unto Catherine oh, Lord and may perpetual light always shine upon her.
With all our Love and prayers,
Peter, Pamela, Sean, Paula, Erin, Johnny, Evan, Kristin and Hailey

To all of my Dillon cousins,
I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Kay, I have very fond memories of her, Uncle Walter and all of you. In recent times I would stop by and visit her when I was in LI bringing with me old family photos. She often did not recognize me but when I would tell her my name she always responded with, "Oh real family." I remember her always calling me and my sisters doll. She will truly be missed.
