Oh Catherine. I'm so unbelievably cushed that a light as bright as yours will not longer shine for all to see. You brought sunshine and laughter into every room you entered. You were the first woman I had the pleasure of meeting at the Hello house and because of that it became an instant home for me. I was able not only watch you grow but grow along side you. It was a gift I will forever cherish. We are beautifully made, broken or not. I will never forget you because you will always hold a place in my beautifully broken heart!! I love you Roomie!! The apartment isn't the same without you! Please watch over us! Continue to light up whatever room your in with that beautiful smile! Thank you fo...r being a real and true friend! Many thoughts and prayers to you and your family!! Read more

Catherine was a person filled with optimism and a genuine love for all people. Her gift was to see the best attributes in everyone and over look their flaws. I am going to miss her smile and laugh but she will always live on in my heart.

Catherine had an infectious laugh and a cheery disposition that you couldn't be in a bad mood around. She was caring and helpful when people needed it the most. I have so many fond memories with her at the hello house, joking around and laughing about how gullible she was. She will be missed but always remembered! I am honored to have her as part of my journey.
