Cate Edwards

John and Elizabeth's daughter Cate was just 14 years old when her brother died. For the first two years after his death, Cate couldn't bring herself to sleep upstairs by herself. Instead, she slept in her parent's room.

"It was a sort of strange thing to be doing, going into your freshman year in high school, I suppose, but it was comforting. I didn't want to sleep alone," Cate says.

Cate says one of the things she craved the most after Wade's death was a sense of normalcy. "Part of me just wanted things to be the way they had always been. And there was no way we could make that happen, but I thought in little things maybe we could. So, we tried to have dinner as a family and tried to do the sorts of outings that we did before."
