Dear Cathy (second mom),

Thank you for all the memories over all the years. The memories that I hold most dear are: times I slept over waking up to a homemade breakfast, the time's that I would come home for Christmas and other times and we'd reminisce about passed years, And also the time you comforted me when I thought that my world had ended when my dad passed. You gave me very encouraging words. I'm going to miss you terribly. I love and always will love you. Your legacy, memories, and all the good times will always be embedded in my heart.

Your Great Nephew,
Christopher A. Mulholland
