It is saddening to hear about your loss. As kids, we spent a lot of time together. Carmen and I were always hanging out. Cathy, years went by and before you know it, it turned to many years. I think of Carmen all the time and you will be in my memory as well.

I am so sorry for your loss to both families.

My deepest condolences to the Anello and Mauro families. Ive known Caterina for about 15 years. In that time we had become good friends. Caterina was always there for me to bend her ear. She was very genuine and kind hearted. She was full of advice and wisdom. She always had a positive outlook. She would even give me suggestions on cookie ideas. I will miss her terribly. Please take comfort in knowing she made such an impact in people’s lives. ❤️

In loving memory ...
I/we pledge to make a memorial donation.

I always appreciated Zia Cathy’s enthusiasm, smile, and laugh. I am grateful that I got to visit her a few years ago at my Aunt Mari’s house with my cousins. I am sending my love and hugs to her family and friends during this incredibly difficult time.
