We were heartbroken to learn of the passing of our dear friend Catherine Darin.

We met Kay in the late 1980s when we literally ran into her in front of the bleacher entrance at Tiger Stadium. Such a tiny woman, the crowd seemed to swallow her up. We were so fortunate to bump into her. She was passing out flyers from the Tiger Stadium Fan Club. She had a darling Irish brogue and told us about a meeting to be held at the Gaelic League. At her encouragement John and I attended and our lives were forever changed.

We loved and admired Catherine. She was both fragile and fierce! A perfect combination of grace and courage. We adored her and will miss her terribly.

I am sure there is some pretty good baseball to be seen in heaven and I imagine Catherine, Eva and Lou are all having a great time. We didn't Save Tiger Stadium but our memories of it and the three of you will never die.
