It’s been one year since we said goodbye to an extraordinary woman and my every day hero – my late mother-in-law, Cathy Coffin.
Diagnosed at nineteen with a rare autoimmune condition, she experienced a slow and steady loss of her physical capabilities throughout her entire life, which ended shortly after celebrating her 59th birthday.
As we greeted over two thousand people who came out to pay their respects, I couldn’t help but notice a pattern in the conversation.
She was always smiling. She never complained. She was so positive.
Most people feel they can eat healthy for one meal, and usually they’re right. But if one meal becomes two, and two becomes three, before long they will build up the identity of someone who eats real food.
Just like Cathy built up an identity of someone who remained positive and empowered against all odds.
RIP Cathy Coffin
