I met Cathy IRL many years ago when she came to DC for a visit. kitiara and I took her down to the Mall and visited a couple museums.

She was only a year older than I am. Rest in Peace.

I met her that same weekend when I drove up from Charlottesville the night she flew in and met her and Stacey at the Cracker Barrell for dinner. I remember it being horribly rainy and a weeknight and thinking to myself that I was crazy for driving 3 hours for dinner but I had know her for so long and didn't want to miss the opportunity to meet her in person and give her a great big hug. Mission accomplished.

I'm trying to remember when that was. I'm thinking 2003 or 2004.

Yeah, it had to be because I moved away from Charlottesville in September 2004.

Okay cool. How are you? Are you still in Montana and loving it? The NBB that I'm Mom to is just a few months away from being a teenager believe it or not.

That NBB is almost a teen makes me feel SO OLD! And yep, still loving Montana. I can't remember when we last chatted but I got married and I'm a detective with the police department now. :)

Very cool. Glad life is good. Last we spoke you were eyeing being a lawyer. Glad you chose to join the light side. Congrats on the marriage!

She generally reads my LJ. I haven't contacted her directly.

Yep, 2003. I just found out from Corto's journal. It's very sad. :(

She was a very special woman, and I'm so glad that Knight and I got to spend a week with her in Vegas recently. You have my sincerest condolences as well. *Hugs*
