Fred and Cathy

Cathy Pizarro, Betty’s oldest daughter, who helps Betty and me deal with computer malfunctions and much else, came back to live with us years ago after her husband, Tony Pizarro, was hit and killed by an unlicensed driver in a stolen car in New York. Among other things, she took herself back to college, earning her first degree of Associate in Arts.

(We don’t know how we ever got along without her!)


  1. JJ Brannon says:

    Congratulations to her.

    You’re both inspirations to those of us who have yet to decide what we’re going to be when we grow up.

    It’s never too late!


  2. Paul Wolf says:

    Congratulations! I hope she feels proud of herself!

  3. Don Sakers says:

    Congratulations, Cathy!

  4. Ken Houghton says:

    Mazel tov! (And sadness about why she’s in Chicago instead of New York.)
