I’m was so shocked to hear this. Glenn, I think we met a couple times during my time at the phone company. Cathy was such a bright light and a joy to see everyday, especially in that dark place. I wish SO MUCH that you guys could of had more time but I’m also so glad and fortunate for the time that we all had with her. That candy pooping cow thing of hers was ridiculous though :)

Dear Glenn and Family,

Our heartfelt condolences go out to you with Cathy's passing. We will always remember her wonderful smile and big hug every time we were together. Wrestling tournaments will not be the same without her, but I know she will be looking down on us. The Warrior wrestling program will always be thankful for her hard work at the concession stand and helping at the head table during tournaments.
