    I am so sorry for your loss! Catherine sure fought the fight and
    accomplished that with much humor. I will miss seeing her on our floor
    handing out candy bars and throwing in a smart joke while she was at it.
    She has a special place in my heart and called her our floors princess! I
    miss her greatly. My condolences to the whole family. We are truly going
    to miss her.
