|Let the memory of Catherine be with us forever|
"I will always remember how much fun I had with Cathy at my communion party. She was like no one I had ever met. I don't even know if anyone ever noticed we had left the party, but, we went outside to do some exploring. We even tried to break into a bus. She was amazing and beautiful and I wish I could have known her better."
"I think of her goodness, silliness that made me laugh and face that always had a smile! We miss and love you!"
"To my beautiful daughter we miss you so much, but you make me so happy went you visit me on my dream. Also went you give us a sign that you are around us . I'm so happy that God gave us 19 years of yours lovely memories. Always yours daddy love you forever."
"Lupe, Although I did not meet your precious daughter she sounds like an amazing fun-loving young lady who touched so many lives with her love, joy and laughter. We shared our loss of our children, and yes, there will always be an empty place in our hearts for our loved ones. Only God can give us peace and healing one day at a time. It's especially hard on anniversaries, holidays and their birthday. Sending you love and hugs during the upcoming holidays. May God continue to heal your heart."
"Love my crazy cousin Cathy!! She was funny and sweet. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her. She is very much missed. I always think how she would have been the first one at the hospital when we had our babies. She would have been the one we had to fight with to hold the new babies! Veronica and I nicknamed her Rambolina after she came with us on a camping trip and was going to kick some boys butts that were messing with us. She tried climbing a tree to ambush them!! She was crazy like that! I love you Cathy "Rambolina"!!"
""Cathy's clown" was the song I remember. She would come to Texas and for sure we would be going to Mexico. I miss her so much and I know she is with us because I was told by my daughter."
"My big cousin was always so adventurous. I remember she would put me in her lap and let me drive her mom and dads lincoln. Lol...she would always take me to dairy queen and let me drive on the curvy road. She was always full of life and brave. She made me feel safe cause she would stick up for me. I miss her so much! I know she would be just like a sister to me if she was here. I guess only God knows why she had to go so soon. It brings comfort knowing she was there waiting for my mom. She finally has one of her Tia's with her. They both were very vibrant and loving! I miss you Cathy!!! Love you forever and I will see you soon! XOXO"
"Cathy my sweet crazy lovable niece and goddaughter. I TRUELY miss you so much your laughter, your love and your presence. I miss the children you never had, you would have been a wonderful mother. I take great comfort in the fact that you are loving, kissing and caring for all the little ones that have been lost to us. There was this meditation I once had, there was this trail going into the woods I followed it. The sun was shining through the trees and it felt warm. I followed it up a small hill, and when I got to the top of the hill there was this beautiful meadow. From a distance I can see a playground with swings, slides, monkey bars, sandbox, balls. They were many children running around, playing tag and gathering flowers from nearby. As I walked closer I started to look at all the beautiful faces of all the children there. I saw Jesus playing, talking and embracing all those BEAUTIFUL children. They all looked so HAPPY ! Then, that was when I saw you, you were on a swing with a child in your lap. As I walked closer to you, you looked up and smiled. You showed me the child and I looked at her face and I recognized her BEAUTIFUL little face, it was Ronnie' s daughter on your lap. She miscarriage her first baby and she was a girl. I know this because Jesus allowed me to see you there with her daughter on your lap. You were so HAPPY and CONTENT ! You were smiling and just loving on our BEAUTIFUL GIRL ! I know you are with all our children, who have been lost to all of us much too soon. I believe you tell them about their mothers, how much they LOVE & MISS them ! Then one day when GOD calls their mothers Home to himself. Jesus will be there with you at his side, you will there holding our babies and they will recognize who we are because YOU have told them all about us, even their Grandmas !!!! I have to say I did not want to leave that place of LOVE and PEACE. I knew that all will be well. You are in the hands of JESUS, and He has allowed you to be His hands in loving our BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN !!! I LOVE YOU MY CATHY !!! XOXOXO XOXOXO XOXOXO"
"You were wise beyond your years, had such a creative soul, and I miss you! I have so many memories that I replay in my head, So I'll share one of the songs we made up as children.
Cousins singing " you raised us from babies to children and that's why we love you sooo So mother on this day we wish you a Happy Mothers Daaay.."
"Lupe, the last note Cathy sent me was telling how glad she was for our friendship. She loved you so much...she asked me to always be your friend and stand by your side. How pleased she must have been recently to look down on us from Heaven and see us making our way across Italy together...friends forever...Love you always...Orlett"
"My sweet little cousin Cathy...I sure miss her. I think of her often. I get choked up and tears roll uncontrollably. I remember her full of life. She always seemed happy when family visited their home on Tell Street. I see her smile which makes me smile. I wish I could see her toss her hair back. I remember her pretty self on her Quinceanera."
"Cathy is my cousin, we were one year apart. I miss her dearly. She had a laugh that was infectious. You couldn't help but laugh when you heard it. You didn't know if you were laughing at her or with her. But it didn't matter because she had a way to make you happy. I think about her all of the time. Our family is so close and I always feel that she is around when we are together. Cathy I love you and I know in my heart that you are here watching over us and you are here celebrating with us in spirit <3"
"It will be 24 years since my baby, my daughter died. My life has never been the same. There is a hole in my heart that can never mend, I have empty arms that will never again hold her. I miss her and love her so much. Mom"
Have a suggestion for us?
