    I was so sorry to hear about Catherine’s death. She was such a wonderful part of my young life, like a second mother to me and I have missed her greatly in the last 20 years. She taught me so many things and influenced me in so many ways. There are still things that I do today because of her guidance. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Vicki

    Just heard this morning about her passing. My sincere condolences to her family. Mrs. Gruhn was a good friend to my mother, and her sons were good friends to my older brothers. Our family grew up with the Gruhns in many ways, and memories of her and Mr. Gruhn take me way back. God grant her and her family peace.

    My deepest and most sincere sympathies to the family of Catherine. My life was so complimented by most every aspect of friendship both from an early age to adulthood, by her. Somehow her special attributes will live on long in my heart.
    My prayers for strength go out to each…..Mr. Gruhn, Gail and Tim.
    Steve…….also …bee bee paul…… your “Mom” would say!
