Catherine, Mama Lou, was a lovely, stylish, and deeply caring lady and grandmother. I enjoyed her friendship greatly over the last 20 years at all the Rabbach and Stewart family Weddings, birth of grandchildren, Baptisms, First Communions, Birthday Parties, 4th of July Celebrations, and summer, Thanksgiving and Christmas visits to Alameda. Many thanks for your friendship, Catherine. Prayers and Love, Ruth Stewart
