    A strong Irish lady wrapped up in such a little package!  You truly inspired us all and showed us how to live as a loving, caring family, and that legacy will carry on throughout the three generations you leave behind. Smile down proudly on them all - you\\\'ve done well. I will miss those bright, wide eyes and beautiful smile, but most of all, your heartfelt hugs and kisses hello and goodbye. Godspeed Aunt Catherine...until we meet again...

    All My Love, Lynn Barker (a/k/a Stella)

    P.S. The Doll Raffle will never be the same!!  Who could possibly fill those big (tiny) shoes?!

    I miss you so much already, Grandma! The next two days will be tough but I know you will be there in spirit. I am blessed to have had 25 years with you and am now blessed to have the best guardian angel I could ever ask for. As you would tell me "Love you always, in all ways".
