    My dear Godmother, Catherine, was always an inspiration and a love of my life. We shared, loved, cared and enjoyed each other. My mom, Olga, Catherine’s maid of honor, sends her love and special remembrances. Our “extended” Ukrainian family will forever be in our hearts. We pray for Catherine’s entire family and the peace of God to warm their hearts. Love, Dorothy and daughter, Tracy, who loved Aunt Catherine as well.
