To Mike, Eric, and Mikey,
Cathy was more than a friend she was the sister I never had. We laughed, we argued, then laughed about arguing. She also told me like it was,as I did her. 30 yrs is along time to have someone in your life. Even though there were times we didnt see each other for awhile. If I called her she would be there and the same if she called. I love you guys and I am always here for you. Just know your mom loved you more than anything. She loved her grandkids and bragged about them always. You have hard days ahead but when it gets bad remember some of the crazy funny things she did.If I know Cathy she is up there watching making sure you do things the right way.

To Eric and all the Ellis family:
We are so sorry for the loss of Cathy, too soon. It is so good to know that she fulfilled a life-long goal. That is something many people do not get to do in a lifetime. I know she was blessed to have all of you in her life.

To all of Cathy’s family. I hadn’t seen Cathy for a long time, and didn’t realize she was ill. I was so shocked to read of this today. My heart is heavy; and I am sure all of your hearts are too. I worked with Cathy at the Mutual when we first got out of school. We had so many laughs and memories together. I will pray that God will comfort you all through your sadness. She was such a lady that will be missed. Sharon (Viars) White
