"Dragul nostru verisor,
Inca ne e greu sa credem ca nu esti cu noi sa sarbatorim ziua ta de nastere, sa glumim si sa comentam meciuri, sa pescuim si sa mergem la camping, ne-am gandit mereu la tine, de cate ori am fost vara asta, ti-am simtit prezenta seara cand stateam in jurul focului si priveam stelele, stim ca erai si tu acolo, cu noi...pentru ca asa mult ai iubit natura...
Dar prezenta ta fizica nu poate fi inlocuita cu nimic, te pastram in memorie asa cum ai fost, vesel si generos, si stim ca de acolo ne ajuti sa trecem mai usor peste greutati asa cum ai facut-o si cand erai cu noi.
Ne gandim mereu la tine, stim ca azi celebrezi cu ingerii...

Dana, Mario, Claudiu"

"Un an déjà. Bien sûr, la vie continue et peu à peu, on s’habitue à l’absence des êtres chers, comme s’ils étaient partis pour un très long voyage, avant l’ère de l’internet et des SMS. Mais on n’oublie pas. Et comment oublier Catalin ? On ne peut pas avoir croisé le chemin de Catalin sans en garder un souvenir impérissable. Une personne vraie, avec un cœur tellement grand qu’on ne pourrait même pas compter tous ceux qu’il a aidés par un geste, un mot, un sourire et par toute son implication à bâtir un monde meilleur.  
Catalin. J’entends encore son rire résonner dans les couloirs du bureau, et c’est avec beaucoup de tendresse que je pense à lui, à son humour dans toutes les situations, à sa passion aussi lorsque quelque chose lui tenait à cœur. Je revois aussi tout l’amour et la fierté dans ses yeux lorsqu’il parlait de sa femme et de sa fille, et la tristesse aussi pour son pays.
Un an plus tard, nous apprenons à vivre dans un monde sans Catalin, mais dans lequel il a laissé ses traces, indélébiles. Et grâce à lui, nous avons tous un petit rayon de soleil dans le cœur qui nous fait sentir « great ».
Merci Catalin."

"La vie n’existe pas sans la mort. Et quand on perd un être cher, il n y a pas de mots pour décrire la tristesse et la douleur que l’on peut ressentir. On a tous perdu quelqu’un de cher avec le départ de Catalin. Catalin d’une âme si grande nous a laissé un si grand héritage qu’on ne peut pas oublier si facilement tout le bonheur qu’il nous a procuré. Dans ce grand héritage, je regarde Andreea, la belle femme qu’elle est devenue ; intelligente avec un grand cœur et de belles valeurs, remplie d’amour, prête à aider ses amis et un peu entêté. On sait très bien de qui elle a hérité ça.

Il nous a laissé comme héritage de bons amis et de nouveaux amis desquelles Catalin a tenu un si beau propos qu’il m’a été impossible de ne pas penser qu’ils étaient autant merveilleux qu’il le prétendait. Je les aime tout autant qu’il les aimait et aime toujours.

(Catalina) Pour ma part, je n’ai jamais vu deux êtres vivants s’aimer autant et je me considère particulièrement chanceuse d’avoir été élevée par eux. Ma maman, une femme forte au cœur si chaleureux a toujours été un réconfort. Puis, papa, un rêveur pour qui les limites du possible n’ont jamais été un prétexte pour cesser d’espérer en la vie m’inspire autant qu’avant. Ils m’ont appris qu’il faut toujours être intègre à ce que l’on est et qu’il faut respecter les autres autant que l’on se respecte soi-même. J’en serai éternellement reconnaissante…

Prenons un moment et envoyons à Catalin tout notre amour pour qu’il se repose en paix. Chaque fois qu’il sera dans nos pensées, il ravivera la flamme de nos souvenirs et ouvrira un pont entre nous et le ciel pour pouvoir le traverser à chaque fois que sa présence nous manque…

Tu nous manques, on t’aime et on t’aimera toujours aussi fort. Une grande âme ne meurt pas, puisque son passage sur la terre est imprégné à jamais dans notre mémoire et dans notre cœur."

"I am so saddened by the loss of my dear friend Catalin.  Catalin was one of our highlights to YASC conference every year.  We became great friends and this last year I was able to meet his beloved wife.  As many of the others have said Catalin was a devoted father, husband and employee.  I have never met a man so proud of his wife and daughter and I know he will leave a very empty hole in their hearts. For someone who I only saw once a year he made a huge impact in my life with all of his help, suggestions and humor.  I will miss you forever dear friend and I pray the lord to bring comfort to your wife and daughter.  Don't work to hard in Heaven, Cat!"

"Catalin was someone I had the privilege of working with for over 4 years.  He was so intelligent, kind, caring....always willing to help.  His love of life and pride in his family was so evident.  Although I did not see Catalin for over 13 years, he would call me occasionally just to see how I was.  Truly one of a kind.  May you rest in peace Catalin."

"Catalin was a friend, teacher, and colleague for the 16 years that I knew and worked with him.  He taught me computers, and I taught him American sayings and slang.  I miss him so very much.  I wish that I would have had the chance to say Good-bye."

"Hey buddy, I know that you will be with us during the holidays. I know the Christmas angels are happy and fortunate to have you amongst them just as we felt when you were physically with us. I will always have you in my heart and will be thinking of you. Merry Christmas my dear friend!! :)"

"Draga Catalin...cel mai bun coleg si sfatuitor din toate timpurile....

Imi amintesc cu drag de prima zi de munca cand ai venit si mi-ai spus " Daniela, daca ai nevoie de ceva imi spui mie si am eu grija mai departe....sa ai grija Cata draga de acolo din cer, dintre ingeri, de cei lasati aici pe pamant...familie si prieteni dragi.....noi nu te vom uita niciodata....

Cu drag si dor,

Daniela Cercel"

"Inca nu ne vine sa credem ca nu mai esti cu noi Cataline. Ai plecat prea repede din acesta lume. Am petrecut multe momente impreuna, incepind din armata, facultate iar apoi aici in Canada. Momente frumoase impreuna cu familiile noastre si cu prietenii. Ai fost un om deosebit si cuvintele nu sint de ajuns ca sa exprime bunatatea sufletesca pe care ai avut-o si pe care ne-ai impartasit-o de cite ori ai avut ocazia. O sa ramii intodeauna in sufletul nostru, iti dorim sa te odihnesti in pace in cealalta lume, plina de dragoste si fericire.

Dumnezeu sa te odihneasca!

Talida, Camelia si Dan"

"Nu pot sa cred ca a plecat...

Catalin a fost un om extraordinar, de o inteligenta exceptionala, un autodidact, dar mai ales o inima mare. Iubitor, energic, ambitios si foarte exigent. A vrut intotdeanu sa fie cel mai bun in ceea ce face. In copilarie invata atat de mult incat mama se ruga de el sa mearga afara sa se joace. Pasionat de muzica, a invatat singur sa cante la chitara. In liceu a participat la toate olimpiadele si proiectele posibile. Ce mandri am fost toti cand, impreuna cu un coleg, a construit o microcentrala eoliana chiar pe acoperisul liceului. Era in 1981 sau 1982 si cine se gandea pe atunci, in Romania, la energii alternative...

I-au placut atat de mult muntii...Tocmai ne propusesem sa mai urcam o data pe Ceahlau, peste doi ani, cand urma sa vina din nou aici.

Mereu fara odihna, nu stiu de unde avea atata energie sa faca atatea lucruri. S-a straduit sa ajute pe toata lumea. Intotdeauna a fost un sprijin pentru mine, un pic cam enervant cand ma obliga sa invat. Dar iti multumesc acum, stii ca mi-a prins tare bine.

Sper ca si Emilia si Catalina vor regasi in ele puterea sa treaca peste aceasta dureroasa despartire.

Acum ti-ai gasit linistea si odihna, dar ai lasat un gol imens in sufletul nostru...

Odihneste-te in pace, frate drag."

"Profund indurerati, transmitem un gand de mangaiere si sincere condoleante familiei indoliate! Dumnezeu  sa-l odihneasca in pace si liniste pe Catalin, iar celor ramasi in urma sa le dea puterea de a trece peste acest necaz!
Brindusa si Robin"

"Trecem prin momente foarte dureroase: unul dintre cei mai buni prieteni a hotarat, pe neasteptate, sa ne paraseasca si sa ne... astepte intr-o lume mai buna si mai linistita...; este vorba de Catalin, un prieten adevarat, despre care este destul de greu sa exprimam in cuvinte ceea ce simtim acum...; Vei fii prezent pentru totdeauna in mintile noastre Cata, exact asa cum te-am cunoscut: UN OM MINUNAT !
Suntem mandrii ca am avut ocazia sa ne cunoastem, sa fim prieteni si sa ne bucuram impreuna, in nenumarate ocazii, de placerile oferite de aceasta viata!
On va se souvenir toujours de toi, Cata !
We always missing you, Cata !"

Rest in peace Catalin!"

"Dragul nostru verisor,
au trecut cateva zile de cand nu mai esti cu noi... ne-ai lasat mai singuri si mai nedumeriti decat atunci cand am ajuns prima data pe aceste pamanturi...acum, la inceputul unei ierni lungi...
Stim ca ai mai fi vrut sa faci multe aici, dar pare ca Domnul a vrut sa te odihnesti mai mult...sau poate te-a invitat sa petreceti sarbatorile impreuna...
Ne vom aminti mereu cu drag de tine, de zambetul tau si mai ales de bunatatea ta, ramai cu bine, verisor drag...te vom pastra mereu in inimile noastre..."

"Cata, prietenul nostru bun, prietenul tuturor
Bunatate de suflet, inima generoasa, daruire, energie, forta...de a lupta...pentru tot si pentru toti...
Ce multa dragoste si, sensibilitate intr un singur om, Catalin al nostru  !

Parca te vad, cit  erai de  bucuros, cind ajungeai la noi la cabana...Iubeai  mult natura....Ce placere cind  te vedeam fericit  .... Ca , nu era f.usor ptr. Cata sa se poata relaxa... .Adesea  aveam si cu cine sa ma contrazic ,si cine avea mereu dreptate.....Cata, binenteles!
Cine ne va mai aduce noua bere,, fara alcool,,si, cind ai realizat,ce am mai putut ride....of, Cata....

Alinarea noastra e sa stim ca ai plecat ptr. o lume plina de minunatii....
Acolo, unde e mereu primavara, unde tristetea si suferinta nu exista.
Cu lumina sufletului tau, ajuta-ne sa avem grija de fetitele tale.
Te iubim, si iti dorim o imensa liniste sufleteasca, care numai acolo unde ai ajuns, o poti simti.....!!!
Absenta ta o sa o simtim pentru todeauna.............."

"I will remember Catalin most for his total devotion to his wife and lovely daughter.  He always had pictures to share and his eyes lit up as he showed them.  Catalin's sense of adventure was always amazing, driving laps on a Formula One track in a Formula One car, no less; having the training in place just to do that was very impressive.  Catalin had an immense amount of passion and a sense of adventure behind  his quite demeanor.  He was always available to help.  Time is the only thing that can fill the void left by his passing.  My heartfelt condolences to his wife and daughter, the ones who need our support and prayers--Catalin is happy, I am sure."

"Adorable, attachant, énervant, sensible, attentionné, entété, drôle, paternel, loyal, ironique, direct, protecteur. positif, fonceur... Tellement de facettes qui faisaient de Catalin cet homme exceptionnel et inoubliable que j'ai eu le privilège et l'honneur de cotoyer pendant près de 19 ans. Il était mon ami, mon grand frère. Un grand homme comme lui ne peut pas juste s'envoler, les traces de ses pas sont gravées dans ma vie. Catalin, je ne t'oublie pas."

"Dragul meu prieten drag,

Daca m-ar fi intrebat cineva pana la plecarea ta cine e Catalin, as fi zis ca e un prieten. Acum, cand tu te-ai dus intr-o lume mai buna, imi dau seama ca  nu erai doar un prieten, ci cel mai bun prieten al nostru.

Ai lasat un gol sfasietor in sufletele noastre, gol ce poate fi estompat doar de gandul ca tu esti acum intr-un loc ''unde nu este durere, nici intristare, nici suspin''.

Te am in fata ochilor cand te intorceai de la scoala si vorbeam in capatul aleei. Imi spuneai despre profesorii pe care-i voi avea si-mi dadeai sfaturi si ma indrumai ce sa fac. Apoi ne-am pierdut pentru cativa ani buni si ne-am regasit aici. Si sfaturile si ajutorul tau au continuat ori de cate ori am avut nevoie, si-ti multumesc...

Ne vom desparti din nou pentru catva timp. Iti doresc drum lin si luminos. Sa ne astepti si sa ne indrumi cand vom ajunge si noi Dincolo...La revedere, prieten drag..."

"Some, are bound to die young. By dying young a person stays young in people's memory. If he burns brightly before he dies, his brightness shines for all time. Catalin, you will stay forever young in our memory!
Rest in peace!
May God give enough strength to the family to pass these difficults moments!"

This tribute was added by Marco De Vito on 17th December 2014

"Dear Catalin,
you've been gone for three days now and I must admit that I've never had to experience such grim and devastating three days in my life.
Although I refuse to accept the fact that you are gone, I know that you are sitting along side me as I write this to you.
I am grief-stricken and heartsick knowing that I could not help my dear friend, teacher and big brother as you were sick. You left so suddenly, we did not get a chance to see through our future plans. Now, I must eat sushi and go fishing with you in spirit.
I keep listening to your voicemail... Your voice is full of life and happiness. I can not help but think about the man you are; a man full of life, lessons, laughter, dedication for your work, and an immense love for your family.
You have helped me with your wisdom through life's greatest obstacles and you have taught me great lessons that life has to offer. You are a man with light in your heart and knowledge in your mind as though you have lived a thousand lives.
Sadly, you left us way too soon. Although you left us physically, the enlightening gifts you have left us all with, will remain with us forever.
Buddy, I miss you dearly and I will always yearn for more time with you.
The darkest nights produce the brightest stars and though I am heavyhearted to see you leave, I know that you are shining up in heaven just as you did, here on earth.
Rest In Peace Buddy, until we meet again."

"Catalin était quelqu'un de merveilleux. Je crois fortement que cela est incontestable. Il était inspirant, chaleureux et têtu de temps en temps. Il me manque déjà, et il me manquera probablement jusqu'à ce que je m'éteigne à mon tour. Toutefois, il a marqué tant de gens et tant d’âme par sa férocité lorsqu’il entreprenait quelque chose qu’il s’est donné lui-même la chance de vivre dans le collectif des personnes qu'il a rencontré, même après son départ. Pour ma part, il ne sera jamais oublié et il m’a offert la chance de vivre par mes propres valeurs et par une intégrité qui m’est propre. Il m’a montré qu’il faut faire ce qu’on aime et pour ce que cela nous rapporte. Je t’aime tellement… et je t’aimerais toujours. Je te souhaite la meilleure des paix maintenant, et je sais que tu veilles sur nous. Pour une fois que tu peux te détendre profites-en bien papa."

"A beautiful and caring man.  I knew Catalin only a short time, but my time with him was all it took to understand how good a person he was. He just wanted to do good.   God Bless!"

This tribute was added by Stacye Donaldson on 17th December 2014

"Cato was a wonderful person, he took pride in his job, always had a smile on his face, a wonderful story to tell and a wealth of knowledge on just about anything. He is truly missed but will be remembered forever. God bless you Cato, and your family during this difficult time."

This tribute was added by Jacklyn Leung on 17th December 2014

"Always so caring, always with a lending hand, that's how I'll always remember you Catalin, and of course, all your car stories and IT jokes.
Rest in Peace my friend, you'll be greatly missed.


"HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST

God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you
and whispered, “Come to me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
and saw you fade away,
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.""

This tribute was added by Marian Burciu on 16th December 2014

"Catalin was a very special person and he will always be remembered with love and pride by all his friends and family. God bless you and give you comfort and healing. Rest In Peace my old friend."
