I met Cathy in high school. She was the prettiest girl in the school and she didn't know it. She also happened to be the most beautiful person I had ever met. Every word that came out of her mouth was kind. Every emotion that came from her was real. Just being around her made you happy. I have only seen Cathy a handful of times since high school, but I have always considered her a dear friend. A few weeks ago she was in town from California and we were going to make her dinner, but she slipped on the ice and broke her ankle. We didn't get to see Cathy. Last night she died from a blood clot that formed in that broken ankle. The world lost one of the kindest, sweetest, most thoughtful people ever. I love you and will miss you Cathy. I may also get a little teary every time I see a duck, especially if it has handle bars.
