    I’m sorry for the loss of Catherine. She took very good care of my father-in-law, Walter Eagle. Cathy was also a kind and loving person. We had a lot of talks, I love her. Very good person. I know a lot of people will miss her dearly. Take care to the family

    I had the great honor of providing care for Walter for the last couple years of his life. I became very close with both Walter and Catherine during this time, and after Walter’s passing, I stayed in touch with Catherine. I would go out and visit with her and cut her hair for her, and help with whatever I could. She was an amazingly kind, giving, and beautiful person. I will miss her so very much. My deepest condolences to all of her family and friends, as we are all greater for knowing and loving her.
