Today we remember and celebrate our sister, Cathy.
She was my little sister, but even though she was younger, she was my rock and my protector. We could look at each other and burst out laughing, unable to stop. She never failed to show up when I didn’t even know I needed her.
She brought birthday cakes covered in bright frosting and took delight in seeing it smeared all over my kids’ faces. She loved and encouraged them both and would be so proud of who they’ve become.
Up for some adventure? Cathy was always ready for a road trip or a movie or a walk around a mountain lake. She road around the corn field with me when I ran the grain cart. She stayed with me when she had other places she wanted to be.
She brought joy, frustration, mirth, music, healing, and love from her heart. We miss you today on your birthday and we celebrate you.
