I happened upon this site completely by accident. I was compelled to read and read everything I have. I am from South Carolina and have never heard about this tragedy against your family. My condolences for your loss but I am sure your Mother is so very proud of you. Stay strong and may justice prevail !

A friend shared this website with me and I am forever grateful. I feel like I know Cathy and her family because of this tribute. What a tragedy to such a beautiful family. Of course, she is with God and smiling down on all of her family and friends. I am praying for all of you and that justice will finally be served .

I came across this website when I googled Mark Woodworth evidence because I wanted more information on the case. What an amazing tribute to your Mother, and what a special person she is to you all. I feel for your family and pray for peace And justice.

wow what an amazing site and such a lovely tribute to your Mom. I am so sorry you all have to go thru this all again and I am sorry the taxpayers money is being wasted on yet another trial when they need to just leave Mark in prison where he belongs. I pray your family finally gets peace.

I went to school with Cathy, both grade school and high school. We were in many plays together; she was a bright star in our senior play. I am so sorry to hear of this terrible tragedy; I will keep all if you in my prayers.

I would like to set up a day of events to earn money to start a scholarship fund in Cathy Robertson's name, The 1st thing I need is the approval from the family, and if there are any stipulations on what they want or would prefer I not do. Roxy has my contact information, please let me know if this is something that can be done. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and all loved ones!!!

It goes to show the lack of compassion the justice system has for the victim's family when the family finds out decisions over the internet, and not in person. When will the justice system stop re-victimizing victims?

Suzy Boon said:   May 1, 2012 6:24 pm PST
I don't begin to claim to know all the facts from this case, bit I am extremely saddened to learn that once again you are not allowed to move forward and grieve in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I pray that someday soon your family will be granted a repreive from having to relive this night every few years. I am impressed with the strength of your family & their faith. Hang in there.

Debbie Jackson said:   April 20, 2012 11:44 am PST
What a great website. I only learned of it today and had to check it out. I'm friends with Rochelle but know all her siblings. I know Cathy is so proud of how they have all turned out. All good-hearted people. Keep your faith and stay strong. I can't imagine what you all went through then and have to continue to relive the horror over the years. I pray for peace for all of you. Bless you all and your families.

This is such a beautiful tribute. The poem is just perfect. I've revisited this page several times and tried to put into just a few words how much your family and the time I spent with you all as a kid means to me. It's so hard to summarize it because the memories are so clear, detailed and vast. How do I just say a few sentences? How do I not mention the green leaves in the field with the wind brushing a soft hand along the tops? This was normally glimpsed from the back of the 3 wheeler. Or your mom singing along with Linda Ronstadt on the radio, or playing her old Doors & Beatles albums at my request. Looking at her Spiegel magazines, raiding the deep freeze for push pops from the Schwan's man. Scotty sitting in the fridge w/ the door hanging open when the summer heat got to him, Fashion plates, drawing up house plans late at night, your mom at her sewing machine, your mom stirring something amazing at the stove, you girls and your baby blue monogram sweaters :) Roxanne arriving on the scene, shooting off fireworks in the yard, going to the lake, and on and on and on. I was so lucky back then to have your home as my home away from home. I will treasure the memories forever. Heres to Kathy who made those times not only possible, but beautiful. Peace and love to you all.

Sending prayers for all of you. Stay strong!! Excellent job on this website!!!!

Michelle Jenkins said:   November 14, 2011 7:24 am PST
You will never walk alone down this path in life. You have the love of friends and family, even those you do not know,to hold your hand and carry you when it all seems to much to bare. I pray there will be peace for your family and peace for Cathy. After watching the show, I just want to say, I believe that your mother has met your babies, held them while they were in-waiting,before you even knew they were yours. You have all the love my heart can give you, and all the comfort that it can bring.

Molly Barnett said:   November 13, 2011 9:52 pm PST
I will never forget the day I sat in my parents living room reading the local newspaper about the trial going on in my home town.....I was compelled to get a phone book and look up the Robertson's phone number. I called and asked to speak to Rhonda, the Robertson child closest to my own age. I explained who I was and she knew me from high school. I just wanted her to know that people who really did not know her, her family or her mother were thinking of her and her family. I thought about my own mother and what I would do if I were in Rhonda's shoes. I could not imagine the grief and the feelings of being so wronged. I wanted her to know that her mother's life would be remembered by this virtual stranger to forward 20 years.....I still regularly call Rhonda and remind her that her mother's life will be remembered. I did not have the fortune of knowing Cathy. I only remember from church as a familiar face but all these years later and the hours and hours and hours of conversations about her and what she was like makes me feel like I knew her well. Over the years I have gotten to know all of the Robertson children, some better then others but one thing I know for sure is that they miss their mom and they long for her to be with them. I have witnessed the joy of the birth of a baby be tainted with the heartache of not being able to share that with their mom. I have witnessed the mothering advice so desperately needed without a mother to turn to. I have witnessed the void that I thank God I have not had to endure. I pray that your family will find peace and that the love you all share for your mom will hold you together and make you stronger. I pray that your mom will never be forgotten. I pray that your children will come to know what a beautiful person she was. Let there be peace.....well said!

Anne Myers said:   November 13, 2011 8:58 pm PST
We to remember all to well that day...lives changed forever. I'm so thankful to know & love all of you. You are all amazing...your mom has got to be so proud!

An absolutely lovely tribute!!

Tracy Bolduc said:   November 13, 2011 6:03 pm PST
I loved going to the Robertson house when i was a little girl. I have some of the best memories from those years. This a great website to keep her memory alive.

Tina Hadfield said:   November 13, 2011 3:55 pm PST
I can't believe it has been 21 years since Aunt Cathy's life was taken from her and her family. She inspires to be the kind of mom she was. She will never totally be gone while her kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews are around.

Katie said:   November 13, 2011 10:44 am PST
I am a friend of Amber Anderson (niece of Mrs. Robertson)...My family and I pray for continued upholding of the past 2 convictions

Donita McGlasson said:   November 13, 2011 10:23 am PST
Thank you for sharing Cathy under such difficult circumstances. I am praying for justice and closure. Sending peace and and comfort and strength to Cathy's family. Her beautiful smile will not be forgotten.

Donna Hadfield said:   November 12, 2011 10:21 am PST
This is a beautiful tribute to your mother. Although her life ended in such a tragic and senseless crime, she will live on in the lives of her children and grandchildren. Roger and I will forever love that "bubbly bouncey haired" little sister of mine.

Rachel Smith said:   November 12, 2011 6:02 am PST
You're mother's life shows in the work of her family, children and grandchildren.

Vicki Busse said:   November 12, 2011 4:08 am PST
Absolutley beautiful tribute to Cathy and her life. Thank you for sharing it with us! My heart goes out to each of you for the pain, suffering, and loss you have had to endure. My prayers continue that this wonderful family be granted the peace and solace they so rightfully deserve after all of these years. May God be with you and keep you strong. Stay focused on the memories!

Pam Musser said:   November 11, 2011 6:10 pm PST
I never knew Cathy, but I certainly know all her children. You all have done her a great honor in how you have lived your lives, raised your children, and kept her memory alive. Wonderful job on the website. I pray that you all will soon have some closure to this nightmare. My love to you all!

Jonesie said:   November 11, 2011 5:18 pm PST
Your Mom was awesome. I loved sleep overs at your house. Way before we were old enough to drive she took us cruising in the suburban. She untangled eithe Rhondas or Ranee's hair that I got tangled up in a hot curling brush. Lil roxy was just a little toddler then, she was such a lil cutie !! So much fun being at your house when I was a younger. I know your Mom is so proud off all of you kids, of course u came from good stock. Luv u all, Jonesie

Babby Williams said:   November 10, 2011 7:19 pm PST
May God bless each and everyone of Cathy's friends and loved ones. I pray that all the happy and fond memories of Cathy warm their hearts. Take comfort in knowing that she is waiting in Heaven to hug and kiss each of you when it is your time to come Home.

Carol Roth said:   November 10, 2011 5:12 am PST
Rochelle, I love you always

Heather Riley said:   November 9, 2011 8:29 pm PST
God bless the Robertson family for the anguish and grief you have endured for 21 years. I really don't have vivid memories of Cathy - only fleeting ones from seeing her at Field School and Central School with Rochelle. However, I am a mother of 3 and cannot imagine leaving a precious family behind after being murdered by a neighbor. This website is a wonderful way to preserve her memory and tell the world about her. Thanks so much for doing this. Heather (Richards) Riley

Rhonda Reeter said:   November 9, 2011 2:17 pm PST
amazing as I read that I could see each of the kids just how described. Love each of you and pray for peace for you all!

Amber Marshall said:   November 9, 2011 2:05 pm PST
Beautiful pictures! My prayers are with your family.

Beverly Shields said:   November 9, 2011 12:11 pm PST
I'm a Facebook friend of Linda Dewell McBain and I saw this story posted by her yesterday. I want to offer my condolences to you and to commend you for your amazing strength in this tragic situation and memory. My prayers for continued strength and comfort. Sincerely, Beverly

Kathy Rosenboom said:   November 9, 2011 4:22 am PST
So sorry Scott and Mandy that you have to relive this tragedy.

Katie (Leach) Purdy said:   November 8, 2011 8:25 pm PST
Really enjoyed the pictures and reading more about Cathy's life. She was my 4-H leader and even drove me to cake decorating classes. I remember her vividly. What a wonderful lady! Miss all you Robertson kids! :)

Sherry Hecker said:   November 8, 2011 7:12 pm PST
I sincerely hope that peace will come to your entire family soon. After having gone through years of grief, suffering, and emotional pain, it is time for this ordeal to be put to rest. You all have done a remarkable job of moving foward and concentrating on your own lives and building families and that is truly what your mother would have wanted.

heart-rendering facts of tragedy for the Robertson family. What a terrible, terrible crime.

Linda Dewell McBain said:   November 8, 2011 6:36 pm PST
I am forever grateful that I have been reunited with my friend Cathy's beautiful family. This is a wonderful tribute to her and she was truly a wonderful mother and wife. We know she is watching down on everyone and in a better place but we will always miss her and especially this time of year. Hugs & prayers to you & your family.
