My sincere to her family, friends and other loved ones. The memorial sounds like it will be vibrant and lovely. It sounds like she will be missed by many and that in her work, she made an impact with local youth. I am very sorry that she won't realize her dream to be a math teacher. We need good math teachers! I am very glad to learn that she had a chance to work with kids. Perhaps that shaped her ambition. I hope the kids she worked with will always remember her fondly.

When my 2-year-old son was in gymnastics, I would ask him what his favorite part of the day was. Every time, his answer was, "Teacher Cate!" She made him laugh and love going to class each week. Our family will remember her fondly!
