    I had the honor and privilege of doing business with Alternative Care Providers for many years….Michael and Catherine were honest, dependable, kind, and caring about each individual they shared their day with…Michael out in the field…Catherine behind the scenes, truly running the business, ensuring product delivery, efficiency, client satisfaction…Their mutual goal: improving the quality of life for older adults…Michael would always say Catherine was the “engine” driving ACP’s train…The Durable Medical Equipment field was left bereft with the closing of ACP…Rest in quiet peace Catherine…

    So sorry to learn of Catherine’s passing. I met Catherine and Carmen at her yard sale about 5 or 6 years ago now. She was in the middle of selling off possessions, getting ready to sell her house. I ended up helping her for the next three months, cleaning out the house, yard, and shed. It was a lot of work for everyone, however it was great to have met Catherine and spend so much time over there. Carmen was awesome, so full of energy. Always chasing the monkey up in the tree. I have never seen a dog jump so high! Catherine will be very much missed. My warmest thoughts and prayers go out to Catherine’s family.

    What a beautiful tribute to an amazing woman. I never met Catherine, but being friends with her dear sister Patti and after reading this very loving tribute, feel like I knew her. She obviously enjoyed life to the fullest with a passion only the best possess. Our world needs more compassionate and kind, giving people like Catherine. May God Bless Catherine, her entire grieving family, and her much loved fur baby at this very difficult time. Rest In Peace, dearest Catherine, with your beloved Michael and may Jesus wrap you in his loving arms forever and always.
    With the utmost sincerity to Patti,
    Christine, and the entire Morris family and friends.
