I'm really struggling with the loss of Cathey, too, Sharon...I'm so glad you pulled us all together to get the "Pumpkins For Cathey" posts up. As it turned out, they were just in time. Catherine posted on her blog that she did get to see them so I hope she felt that tremendous outpouring of love and support surrounding her in her final hours...

Sending you a warm hug.
