Note written by Jim Rush in 1996 from Canyon Texas:
On April 14, 1996, the love of my life, as well as my very best friend, Catherine Ann (Stebritz) Rush, Upland 1964, passed from this life into the better worlds, after a five year and one month (to the day) vigorous battle against Breast Cancer. The last ten months of her courageous life was spent in wheel chair, as the cancer had spread to her entire skeleton and she had at least one tumor in every joint.
We were married for thirty-one years, five months, and eighteen days, and friends for forty years, one month, and eighteen days.
It is with the most extreme anticipation that I do eagerly and vigilantly await that blessed moment when I am allowed to join her.
You can have your funky world, see you around.
