We were shocked and saddened to hear of Cathy's passing; we have moved full-time to Tucson, AZ, so are a little out of the loop on any news. Bob went to Wy. with you both, and I knew Cathy through our work in the Jr. Lg. of KCK. She was recording sec. when I was pres. She made me some needle work items I treasurer and have in our home now in Tucson as I did in Kansas City. I've ways enjoyed our friendship and almost always saw her at Sustainer's events, not that long ago. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
