Though I did not know Mary Catherine personally, I have always felt that I did because of her Nashville family. All of you have done so much to help so many grow in Faith, in Hope and in Love. Mary Catherine will bring many many souls along with her as the years go by. Thank you all so much for this great gift. Another blessing from many generations of great hearts and souls.
My deepest sympathies go out to the entire family. My heart and prayers are with you.
May God comfort you in this time of sorrow. Catherine had the most beautiful smile and heart! Val
My deepest sympathy to the family. May you find strength in God who gives comfort to all the mourning ones. Isaiah 61:2
As you grieve know that we are remembering you and honoring the memory of Mary Catherine. In the words of Robert Louis Stevenson: "Like a bird singing in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow."
I know that there are no words that can ease the pain of losing someone so beloved. Mary Catherine touched many lives, and is deeply missed. May the God of all comfort be with you all during this time of intense grief, and always. (1 Cor 15:26) I'm very sorry for your loss.
When God calls little children
to dwell with Him above.
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.
for no heartache compares with
the death of one small child,
who does so much to make our world
seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to His fold.
So He picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them
and so He takes but few,
to make the land of Heaven
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind know
will always be "Goodbye".
So when a child departs
we who are left behind,
must realize God loves children,
Angels are hard to find.
We have prayed over the years for your sweet girl but will keep the prayers coming for her family that loved her so very much. May she rest in peace. Karen & Joe Roddy and family

We will never forget Mary Catherine's many playdates with Samantha during their Greeley days. Mary Carherine's smiles were infectious. In fact, I don't think I ever saw Mary Catherine where she wasn't smiling. We were blessed to have known her.

The Valiquette family is sending you prayers of light and love as you celebrate the inspirational life of Mary Catherine. May God be with you during this difficult time.
I'm so very sorry for your loss. What a beautiful tribute in the paper. She seemed to have a wonderful passion for life and the theater even during her cancer fight. What a blessing that her very large loving family members can help each other heal.
I'm so sorry about Mary Catherine's passing. May her family and friends find the peace they need knowing she was such an amazing person. God has a tendency to take the great ones back sooner so they can be angels for their loved ones. Rest in peace, Mary Catherine.
