Neat story of a woman seems to live the word through her actions and is not afraid to speak up when things need improvement. Thank you Ms. Stokes for a lifetime of service to Gods's children (us). Best of everything to you.

Great story about a great person.

Keep up the good work Sister Stokes!

Cathy "adopted" me in 1999 while I was a lonely student in Chicago. She didn't have to take and interest in me...I was just an 18 month interloper in her ward while I worked on my graduate degree. Yet, she recognized my need, sought me out...fed me and gave me advice when I needed it the most.

Her direct manner and keen sense of humor combine to make her one of the most quotable people I've ever known. When I informed her that I had a new girlfriend (now my wife) she gave me a colorful lecture on remaining chaste. Funny stuff...but totally from her heart.

A few years ago we received a postcard of the Sydney Opera House. On the back it said "If you haven't done this....DO IT! Love, Cathy."

I love Cathy. This world needs more heroes like her.

Great article on a great person. As a former member of the Hyde Park Branch/Ward, I can confirm what a great person Cathy is and how well loved she is.

Such a good story about a wonderful woman. I can just imagine how great it would be to be around her.

I met Sis Stokes a few years ago in Boston, after using her testimony video a lot on my mission, I almost felt I already knew her. What a great lady, and it was honor to shake her hand and call her sister.

Cathy Stokes, adopted me 16, years ago. I was 22 had just "inherited" 7 kids and Keith and I found out we were expecting... My parents had both suffered from debilitating illnesses and I felt alone. Mama Cathy, was my angel, and has been an angel to my children. If not for the Love of GRANDMA Cathy, my kids would not know a grandmother. We love Cathy Stokes!
