Catherine Gertrude Hickey

catherine-hickeyMy friend Brian made this beautiful tribute to his mother, who died last Sunday at the age of 94. It is very nicely done, in my opinion, and I was especially moved by the way he wrote so simply about all the relationships that made her who she was. It’s really a poem, isn’t it?

  1. It is a poetic tribute…what a beautiful lady. I like the insert picture of her dearly beloved, bet they were characters. Sorry we could not make it to the funeral home – it would have been wonderful to hear the stories shared by all.

  2. I am so pleased that you were able to capture (pictures/short video)some special moments of your mother doing her exercises / walking and really making an effort. She was a lovely lady- and you were devoted children.

  3. Marvellous tribute to a splendid lady. Dignity is hard to capture; this does it so well. Our thoughts are with the families.
