Cathy on Michigan Avenue

It is with extreme sadness and sorrow that we tell you that Cathy, one of the fabulous "best women" at our wedding, passed away yesterday after a valiant fight with breast cancer. Maybe you didn't get a chance to actually meet her at our wedding, but she made each and every one of you smile and laugh with her toast. Cathy had a way of profoundly touching people she barely knew and many that she never actually met, and we hope, for a brief period, she was able to meet all of you.

Cathy was Alison's college roommate and the bestest friend we could ask for. She leaves behind an awesome husband, Dan, and a beautiful 4-year old son, Danny, as well as a loving father and brother. We know her mother welcomed her peacefuly into heaven.

A service will be held in Houston, followed by the funeral in Chicago. Please contact us if you would like the details.
