Into Her Own Home
Former resident Carol refers to Catherine's House as the "nicest place on earth." She wrote this note as she was preparing to move into her own home: "Well, as I am making my plans to depart from Catherine's House, I am filled with sadness and joy. For the first time in so long I felt peace, quiet, and joy - all 3 from the moment I was told I could stay here way back in November. Granted I have had some very high highs...and some VERY low LOWS. Losing my brother being the lowest, but through it all I had a place to call home and friends to comfort me. So it is bittersweet as I pack and try not to cry as I say goodbye to the friends I have made here."
