Remembering Catto

Dear Editor:

Henry Catto and his wife Jessica had a genius for friendship. They made you feel both at home and welcome.

A couple of years ago I ran into Henry and asked how Jessica was. I knew she was very ill. “Cancer is a cruel disease,” he told me and now it has taken him. My fondest memory of them is being invited to share a dinner with John Clease at the Pine Creek Cookhouse. We managed to persuade Clease to sing “The Lumberjack Song – “I’m a lumberjack …” The laughter of that evening is how I will remember them.
