Sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. May you find comfort in the hope that soon 'all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out', and you can see your loved one again. John 5:28,29.

Here we sit in an ice storm, too far from you and yet never as close. Sweet Catherine, sitting with her smile, as Teta and the rest boisterously and hilariously carried on in the Ridl way. She WAS a polka. And each of you were a great good gift of love and joy to her. Grief comes as an ambush. Right now, right here it has struck these hearts. It’s always too soon. May comfort come and stay. Feel us way out here hugging you as Catherine would.

We love you so. ❤️🙏❤️
Jack, Julie, and Meridith
