Thanks Catie for being such an inspiration to all of us. Steve said it perfectly when he said, "Even as she was facing cancer and death and everything that entails, I could always see happiness in her eyes and in her smile." We loved the story that was shared about the "be happy" campaign that she started with her family one year ago when they had found out the cancer had returned to her lungs. I will forever cherish the time I was able to spend with her on her last day on this earth, she spent her time building me up and making sure I knew how much she loved me. She was always like this and such an inspiration of someone who made every person she knew feel important and loved.
These photos are from November 2008 when Catie and I went to Chicago for the weekend. I will always cherish all those "ordinary" moments we had.
