The entire Catron family has our prayers & deepest sympathy. Our family has many fond memories of both Esco & Josephine. I became very close to Esco working at Mt. Carmel in early 80’s. Also use many of Josephine’s recipes from MCBC cookbook! Sorry we were away until Saturday evening & could not make visitation.

Love, Ken & Alma

Dear Karen, In the event you don’t remember who I am, we worked together at Hyde Park Center. I think of you frequently and was saddened to read of the passing of your grand-mother. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers at this time of loss and adjustment. May you be comforted as you deal with this change. This comes with my very best wishes for you and your family.
Love and blessings, Minnie
