Memories Timeline


  1. I’ve known Cathy since July 2021 when I joined the team. She has always been kind and always ready to help and mentor. We bonded over our love of our beloved pets (Harley and Boscoe). My pet passed away one month before hers did and we both helped each other throughout our grieving process. I will miss her and I know that heaven received another angel.

  2. I have so many great memories of Cathy! We had such great times together when I lived in Tucson. This picture of her is beautiful as she is an angel! She was very special, sweet and kind. Sending love, hugs, prayers to the family.

  3. RIP my dear friend. I know you are with your loved ones and you’re at peace now. Will miss our monthly chats. We always found something to laugh about. Love you.

  4. RIP Cathy. You have so much of yourself to your profession. I know you are with your loved ones who have passed before you.

  5. Cathy, thank you for your commitment to all of those children and the many others. Your friendship and support are what memories are made of, Until we meet again.

  6. Uncle Bill Gagnon
    Cathy RIP I know you are with love ones and family now. I have fond memories of Cathy and I when we were younger. There wasn’t that many years age difference between us and I would meet her and friends after they
    got off work from the Bickford house and go partying. I will miss being able to stop by and visit with you and
    Basco on my way back home in NH from Florida. I love you girl
    PS say hi to Sandy for me

  7. In lots of ways we were each other’s support system. You were always much stronger than me….You were much smarter than me…You were always much wiser than me….You loved my Mom and spent quality time with her cooking and exchanging recipes. I will always love you for that. Now it’s a new year…with new ambitions and new goals…but good memories never grow old. I will always remember you, Cathy….I love you. Bob
