  1. Dear Steve, I just found out today about Catherine\’s passing. I just want you to know how truly sorry I am. I wish I had known sooner. She was a great one! I know that Barb and I had become good friends, but Catherine and I were friends first. I will always remember her wonderful laugh and great outlook on life. Even though we had many years between us I always thought of her as a very special friend. You may have lost her to soon, but you had what many people will never have. Hold on to all the great memories. Love and prayers, Tutti and Bill Kusmit

  2. I am happy and honored to have known Renee and her family for over 30 years. Renee could brighten anyone\’s day with her beautiful laugh and simle. I will remember her as a caring and compassionate person who loved people, had a sense of humor and possessed exceptional personal magnetism. I was happy to pay tribute to Renee and her family, and to celebrate her life today.

  3. Maggie, Isn\’t it hard to believe that the sun still rises and the sun still sets. That Tuesday still follows Monday It seems that for those that haven\’t been touched by your loss that life goes on as usual. How can that be? My heart goes out to all of you Please know that I\’m here if you need me With my deepest sympathy Kim

  4. To the family of Catherine Delaney, Ed and I are very sorry for your great loss. Although I did not know her well, we knew the children. We both know how difficult it is to lose your mother at such a young age. Our sympathies go out to all of you. Stay close to one another. So very sorry, Sue. And I only just saw you a few weeks ago. I did not know she was ill. Fondly, Ed and Mary Jane
