Look at this photograph

Every time I do it makes me laugh....and the lord knows I could use a good one about now.

Last month the stitching group here in town was working on a book (god bless shutterfly) with a compilation of pics that we had from retreats and stitching days and our stories of Cathey for her dear 'Junior'.  Here is a peek at our dear friend Cathey over the years...

 Stitching away
 Convincing my son at my bridesmaid dress fitting that we could NOT go to McDonald's because she'd been 'kicked out'.  He believed her because she had a tattoo!!  Almost 8 years later he still believed!!
 Getting Gorgeous
 Look at that hair...envy!!
 Grand Champion, I've lost count of how many times I came runner up to her ;)
 Chowing down on my birthday
 Gorgeous Bridesmaid
 Her husband could not take her eyes off of her the entire day
 No wonder!
 And again
 The number of pictures I received of this was overwhelming, apparently we made quite the impression
 There's that smile!
 
 A long time ago, when those bangs were acceptable!!
 More stitching
 She set the bar high for stash accumulation
 As I said, more silliness
 Even more Wildwood fun
Back in the short hair days
My beautiful friend, you will be in my heart always

Thank you so much for sharing these. It truly is appreciated, even more so because I'm sure it can not be easy for you to do so during such a heartbreaking time. Such beautiful memories though and it's so nice to see her smiling and wonderfully happy. Her spirit comes through in every picture, it really does. There are no words for how much she will be missed. :(

I prayed every day for Cathey and her family. While it is a very sad time, we can take solace that she is with her Creator, no longer in pain, suffering no more. Thanks for posting the pictures, it is nice to see her in happier times. I will continue with prayers for her family. She was a very brave woman.
