Thank You For Your Condolences, Prayers and Comforting Thoughts

The past few weeks have been difficult and I’ve been on a hiatus from basically everything.  But at some point, the pieces need to be gathered and put back together with spiritual glue and that’s what I’m doing.

I want to thank you all for your condolences and I’m overwhelmed at the lovely emails and messages received.  They meant the world to me.  And I’m grateful and appreciative.

Thank you so much. You’ve definitely lifted my spirits!

There’s a lot to do in order to get ready for Christmas and I’m getting back to the blog, Instagram and YouTube.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a little slideshow about my brother that my niece, Mary, created. It’s absolutely beautiful and showcases the wonderful life my brother had.  It’s a wonderful tribute to him and I do hope you enjoy!

All my love,  Cathe

About Catherine

Far from perfect, but enjoying life as a non-perfect and flawed individual at 60 years young. I'm still wondering what I'll be when I grow up! The characters in my life's screenplay include my better half. He is a refined Frenchman who grew up in Paris and summered in St. Tropez. I grew up in Long Island and summered in Long Island. I am not refined. My three grown children are also a big part of my life. For their sake, they happily live where their careers have taken them! But I can still mother them from a distance! I write about the mundane. I write about deeply shallow issues. But whatever I write or muse about--it'll always be a bit on the humorous and positive side! It's all good!

  3. OMG, this is so tough.My heart goes out to you. Recovery from this pain will take time. Lots of time. There is no easy way. I hope his memory will help the pain.

    A wonderful filled life but taken too soon. Most people aren’t as lucky to have a wonderful loving family. May God hold you in the palm of his hands.

    What a lovely tribute to your brother – you really get a sense of such a lovely guy. Finding a new normal takes time, also losing someone so close to the celebratory season that includes Christmas can feel really lonely – make new habits or do new things if it feels painful The first year is tough but you get through it on adrenaline the second year can be tougher – so be kind to yourself and just go with it hon

    This was such a beautiful video of a man we all wished we had known. Thank you for sharing it with us. I especially loved when he was sleeping with the dogs. He lived a joyful life.
