    Glen, my most sincere condolences. I remember all those dinner parties and gatherings we had over the years that created so many memories. Ultimately in the end that's all we have. If there is such a thing as an afterlife I'm sure Cathe' and Eunice will be going over the latest SUN contract and debating the merits of each and every clause. Take care. Larry. - Larry Off

    I didn't know Cathe but I know you. Cathe was so fortunate to have you as her husband. The gentle care and attention that you provided her over the last 5 1/2 years that I've known you was so beautiful to witness. My thoughts are with you. - Susan Noer - Susan Noer

    Glen, I’m sorry for you losses. I always enjoyed Cathe’s sense of humour. There was a bunch of us who went to the Women’s Place when Cathe was going. It was a shock of what was happening to her. My thoughts are with you. Beth Rampone - Beth Rampone

    I will never listen to Imagine again and not think of Cathe.
    This picture of her is beautiful! Cathe was a lovely person-I loved making her nails pretty!
    Being able to witness the love and care you had for her was truly a gift!
    My thoughts are with you!

    I can't help but wonder why such a vibrant leader had her health deteriorate in the way it did. Sad.
    I really enjoyed my times with her while she was still living at home.
    Take care,
