    I had four wonderful children,and of course, none of them were perfect, but I really thought most of the time they were. December 4th I lost one of my children. Being a part of family pain before, I now know what suffering really is. Cathy was the sweetest and one of the most thoughtful person I know. OMG, I never thought she would leave this family before me. Cathy, you’re one of my babys , always!! If I told you how much I love you, I would not be able to hold back the tears . It’s your Mothers turn to love and enjoy you. I’m going to miss you so much. Till we’re together again sweetie.

    Words don’t even begin to describe how much I miss you, I always knew when you were at work because I could always smell your perfume and your hair spray…I miss seeing your smiling face, your laughter, our head nods and our inside jokes….I still look for you when zi go into the bathrooms hoping that you will be there……I’m learning to adjust to work without you, however it is not easy, but you rest until we meet again, you are truly missed by this Navistar friend.
