Our thoughts and prayers are with Cathy’s family. Mike and Cathy lived a few streets away from us and we remember Mike riding bikes or walking around the neighborhood with Danny. Cathy and Mike recruited our two children, Michelle and Mike, to usher at Our Lady of Grace along with them. They always took an interest in them and their sports. Both Mike and Cathy Landry will always be remembered by our family, they made such an impression on all of us as loving parents We are sad to hear of Cathys’s passing and are sorry that we were unable to attend the service.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to my Aunt Cathy and her loving family. I visited Aunt Cathy with my husband and my sister, Linda a couple of times since I live here on the west coast She was always so positive and uplifting while talking about her loved ones. I will keep all of her loving family in my prayers. She was so sweet to me and I will miss our visits with her. Love Frances

To my Cousins, (Brothers from another mother!), I pray that you find comfort just knowing how lovely Aunt Kiki was. We all have very fond memories and I just believe that she and Uncle Mike and the rest of our families have reunited in such grace and peace. Although we will miss Aunt Kiki a lot, prayers bring us closer each time. May God bring you comfort in the coming months.
