This is about Cate and her special talents. Is a simple plaque or memorial too much? Get it done.

Why something as simple as putting a memorial plaque in front of memorial tree and/or painting "Cate's Corner" on the wall for a very loved young teacher is mind boggling. Enough with the excuses, our COMMUNITY Services Department needs to just do it already, for Cate and the community which she served.

Cate was my daughter's first teacher and one who will never be forgotten. Her death is still felt in our community and I'm sickened by the comments expressed in the article- "Michelle will keep coming around...". Her mother, Michelle is also a beloved member of our community and their family- as do all of ours- deserves a place to celebrate the life of a beautiful girl whose bright future was tragically taken too soon. Every time I rethink my decision not to send my children to the Gymnastics center at Burgess which stemmed from Michelle's firing and the center's sloppy cover-up, I read an article like this and my blood boils. Those in charge seem to be heartless and shallow and those that are supposed to be overlooking these powers-that-be need to revisit the concept of community.
