I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Catherine Quate. Mere words cannot express the grief that comes from losing someone so special and loving as Ms. Quate. I remember when my Mother went to sleep and the sorrow I felt. What can give gave me a great measure of comfort is the Bible's promises of the day when sickness and death will be no more. Such words can hopefully ease the pain you all are experiencing at this time of sorrow. The comfort of God is soothing. May the God of ALL comfort keep you enduring now and in the many days to come. May happy memories warm your hearts.
Revelations 21:3,4 2 Corinthians 1:2-4

I offer my sincere condolences to Ms. Cathy's family during this time of loss. Ms. Cathy was a good friend to many, a wife, mother and so much more...above all else she was a woman whose light shined, and at times...dazzled.

Ms. Cathy lived life the way she wanted to - I admired that part of her.

She will be missed -
