    My deepest condolences to you and your family Bill. You and Cathy have always been part of my life from grade 8 to babysitting your children to working with you. You both were there for me when I needed you. I only wish I could be there for you now. Cathy had some rough times but alot of good times and the most important times she had were the ones she had with you Bill and her children and the love you shared. Take care of each other Bill and of those grandchildren remembering that they are part of Cathy. Barb LeClair
