I am so sorry I live so far away and due to distance and Covid was unable to visit Cathy before her death. I will miss her greatly when I am again able to visit Olean and Shinglehouse. Every Cardinal I see will remind me of her and know she is keeping watch over her "sister" she adopted, My heart goes out to her family and all who loved her.
