For the followers of Pumpkin Patch and Co



While Cathey has made a lot of plans concerning this part of the battle with cancer, I know part of me was really worried that I wouldn’t hear anything.  I’ve been the bearer of bad news before myself and when you’re losing someone, it’s not always the first thing to think of contacting all of someone’s  friends.  However, today I got an email from her amazing husband with the directive ‘Please keep Cathey’s circle of friends posted’.  I have emailed our stitcher’s here in Atlantic Canada but Cathey’s circle extends FAR beyond that.  I’m temporarily turning this blog into a place to keep you updated because it is what she would want as well.

Today’s update:  Cathey has been moved into the hospital as her condition can no longer be managed at home.  Her condition has deteriorated to the point she can only communicate by eye contact and as it stands.  She will only be with us a matter of days at best.  Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult transition.

Katie.... I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your "tassel twin"... I hope her poor body is at rest now. I feel so sad that cancer has taken another strong woman from the world. Prayers for strength to you, her family, and her extended circle of friends. The next few days will be trying, but happy memories help us through. hugs.
