Here it is 2019, and I still miss you everyday. I wish I could call you and talk to you and tell you about my life and how much I've grown. I'll never forget the first time I met when my mom got married and we stayed with you for a week. I was scared at first but then I felt a sense of home and comfort in you. I still have dreams of you talking to me and showing me the same love you did when I was a kid. Oh how I wish I could hug you again. You will forever be remembered. I love you auntie! Forever and always ❤

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

Auntie Cathy, I miss you so much you were always there for me and I want to thank you. You don't have to suffer anymore and you are free of all of your pains. It hurts knowing that you are not here physically, but you will always be in my heart. I will love you always.

Deborah, part of our circle is gone but not forgotten, Cathy will always be a part of our hearts and stay on our mind. Our every Friday outing and late night spade games is only on pause until we meet again. You have lost a sister and I have lost a very close friend but GOD has gain an angel. It hurts us to loose her but she's in good hands. Take care, let's keep in touch and GOD bless. (

As valuable as words of loved ones and friends may be to us in our grief, no words are more powerful or have more meaning than God's.

He healeth the broken in heart....

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Cathy. She was such a wonderful person. I have fond memories of times and laughter we have shared through the years. Those memories are now priceless treasures that I will
keep close to my heart. There was so much laughter shared between us during the years and I thank God for every moment. Cathy is gone to a place where there is no more pain and suffering. One day we will meet again. Rest in Peace, Girl.

To Debra and Family,
Keep your heads up. The loss of a loved one is never easy but God always knows whats best for us- even when we dont know whats best for ourselves. There are no words that I can say to ease your pain but I will be praying for you. If there is anything you need, please dont hesitate to call me.
