Catherine!! Every night at 10pm I want to call you. I miss everything about you. I miss our brocolli soup, cabbage roll and our late night laughter! I cant believe that life is so fragile! I can see you moving around in your condo, your sanctuary, touching the Budha and the prayer pad on your door before the flying goodbye kiss!! Now where did you go? Just like that you left? Come chat with me in my dream please. I still remember your last words to me: you can't come? I couldn't come because of COVID-19 otherwise you know I would rush even at mid-night. I miss you plenty. I miss you laughing out loud!! Heaven is in trouble! Thank you for the voice mails that keep me going. Sending you back lots of love and kisses!!

One of my fondest memories Catherine was telling her a joke at Chez Catherine and hearing her laugh. She was one of a kind.

love you Catherine
You were my best friend and confidant when I came to Canada
Remember when we would spend the afternoon at Starbucks on the patio in the summer when it was opposite Hazelton
We used to spend many hours on the patio at One in the summer.
Ive had a very strange feeling these last few days and been trying to call you ..I knew something was not ok.
I love you and will always think of you have such a special place in my heart and will always be in my life forever.❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
You always said I was the only one whose opinion you would ask for in clothing ...a wonderful compliment from the queen of Yorkville ...until we meet again ❤❤

Catherine was always gracious and kind to me. She bought my clothes when I started designing over fifty years ago. She was always supportive and enthusiastic. I will miss her.
