Heart of Gold

Cathy has known my husband since he was a young boy. When his own mother passed away, Cathy became like a surrogate mom, great friend, and big sister all rolled into one.

When I first met her, I knew it was her approval I would need above anyone else in my husband's life. Fortunately, she gave me her blessing.

Cathy has overcome more than her fair share of struggles and yet, she spends her days devoted to helping others. She battles chronic pain but always has a smile and a big hug ready for anyone in need. For her family, and those she's chosen as her adopted family, she never gives any less than all she has.

On the surface, she's just a pretty great hairdresser. But every person who leaves her chair leaves it feeling lighter and happier than when they sat down. She sends them away with a piece of herself.

Last summer when my husband and I got married, Cathy played both mother of the groom and bride. She helped us secure a venue, helped us plan, helped us decorate on the big day, and helped me transform into a princess. There's just not enough words to thank her for all she's done, all she is.

If Lovepop could help me in honoring her, I know it would just make her year.
