Catherine Marie Halbrooks, age 38, of Charleston, SC, passed away on May 12, 2014. Cassy was born on Nov 26, 1975 in Sterling, CT to JC and Frances Halbrooks.

Cassy lived and worked in Framingham, MA prior to relocating to the Charleston area to teach Language Arts at Sangaree Middle School.

    I was a classmate of Cassy at PHS and had the utmost pleasure and privilege of calling her “friend”. Her smile and laugh were infectious, and her personality was truly unique. Although after we graduated on the football field of PHS we lost touch like with so many people, she however remained fondly in my heart, as she now always will. I am ecstatic she was able to fulfill one of her dreams of seeing the City of Lights so she goes with one less regret at the last. Cassy was truly one in a million, and when you shine as she does, this dull world cannot hold a star as bright as she, for it must be set free to illuminate the world. Thank you for everything Cassy, love you. X

    I am picturing Cassy with wings, gathering hurting children to her. My husband, Bill, and I were privileged to have Cassy as one of our “daughters” for a short time, through her friendship with our daughter, Meredith. Fly on, Cassy.
