    I am so sorry to hear of Katie’s passing. I met her at Brookstone while her beloved husband was there. They always attended mass where I came to live her.

    Dear Marie, Colin and extended family
    Your hearts are heavy with grief and from afar we send our sympathy and words of encouragement that we hope will help in a small way. What a blessing Catherina was to us and we loved it so much that her Italian heritage was never lost. We learned so much.
    As the “special angels” arrived from Catherina it was such a heartfelt gesture and beautiful way to say “I’m thinking of you and with love”!! Her drawings were unique and her imagination was only hers to share. “Love is a gift to give away” is what she did every hour.
    Catherina will never be lost as she is etched in your hearts and souls to forever remain there. She is with you.
    Our sincere condolences,
    Randy and Carla, Chris and Erin

    Catarina will forever be in my heart! She was an angel on earth and now in heaven with the Lord. My deepest sympathy for the entire Troia family.
