Quote from her brother, Russell:

Curse the demons that took her away, and at the same time, bless the spirits that set her free.

Cathie was my first cousin, a daughter of Charlotte (Atkinson) Fritz and the late William C. "Chuck" Bedillion. Her grandparents were Charles W.and Rowene (Fife) Atkinson and Frank W. and Bessie (Milligan) Bedillion.
