I would like to offer my condolence and deepest sympathy to Gennaro and Gia.Your mom was an amazing person and I feel privileged to ha e known her.I will miss our get togethers but will treasure the memories.whenever I was having a bad day I thought of Cathy of what she was going thru and she never complained. Cathy lived life to the fullest. Her diagnosis was just a detail she wouldn’t let her in the way of her positive spirit.I find comfort in how she had quality over quantity in this life.You earned your wings my friend no more pain.I know you will be watching over all of us like you always have.You are all in my thoughts and prayers.Love Rose McNamee
