In the Mood for Some Old Pictures

I was looking back at some old pictures tonight. Here are a few. The first one is a pic of Catie right before one of her big brain surgeries. It was taken on a camera phone and she's signing "I love you." -- soooo wish I had it in better resolution! I think this was the surgery where Tre' had taught her to shoot spitballs the night before. Aunt NikNik had snuck a straw into pre-op in case she wanted to nail anybody. The one of Catie and I together at the hospital is from the very earliest hospital days when she was about the age Chip is now. I love that picture b/c she is actually sitting up and doesn't have to many tubes. The follwing days were really tough, but this picture has always been a favorite. I really do see a lot of Catie in Chip at this age. The middle one is an all time favorite of mine where she's getting her daddy with flour. The last couple are pics of Catie when she was right about the age Iz is now. In one, she's w/ her buddy Bailee at Stone Mountain. In the other, it's Halloween and she dressed up as a doctor complete w/ a CHOA nametag w/ her picture and all (thanks to our AWESOME Mr. Morris).

Miss you so much sweet girl and soooo wonder where you would fit into the craziness that is our life now. Boy, wouldn't we love to know...

It is hard to believe Catie battled cancer as long as she did. What spunk! I always love your stories and photos of her. My heart both smiles and aches when I see her face. I know you will always wonder what might have been, even as you quietly rejoice that she is with Jesus. Her life has touched mine in unfathomable ways.

Precious girl... I find that words fail me when I try to type. I realize that if I tried to talk to someone about France without ever having been there, I would just sound dumb trying to describe where they'd been. So I won't say anything beyond how very much I wish I could have met your girl, and how very much I hope that I CAN meet you someday. Knowing, of course, that we will all be together "in the blink of an eye", and right about the time that Catie is turning around to look for you.......
hugs... on a night when my heart is so heavy for Merrill, I found a note from Tyler that I thought I'd lost. That boy has so much up his sleeve... even now. I'm sure he is schooling Catie, and SHE may have given him some tips on shooting spitballs. Put Merrill in the mix and it could get crazy....
