Bridge, Cathleen

Cathleen Bridge loved the beach and sunshine. The last time we were together at a beach was on Lake Huron in 1999. Our children were young then and our parents and Nana were visiting from Sault Ste. Marie. It was a big blue sky day! The water was crisp and clear. I can still picture the scene in my mind. She usually wore a hat like this one at the beach. We lost Cathy in the fall of 2002, after a one year battle with a brain tumour. I miss her daily but enjoy memories like the beach day. Cathy wore yellow and orange and a hat. I wish I had more pictures of her from that day. You never know when you will run short of photos of your loved ones. In memory of Cathy, submitted lovingly by her sister Karen.
