A Tribute to Caitlin Grant Ritenour

As you may know, our friend and JHHS Class of 2001 classmate, Caitlin Grant Ritenour, passed away early this year after a 20 month battle with breast cancer.

Caitlin was admirably transparent about her journey through Facebook, which provided a rare and valuable firsthand glimpse into her process fighting the disease.  And though few of us from Caitlin's early life have met her husband, Pete, and son, Jacob, it is a joy to now be able to watch as they continue their life together, powered by Caitlin's love and memory.

We are launching this campaign as an opportunity for those who were part of Caitlin's youth in Winchester to come together in memory of our friend--though we encourage and welcome support from anyone who knew her at any stage of life. It is our hope that proceeds from your generosity will enable Pete to create a little extra magic and joy for Jacob, beginning with this first Christmas without their beloved wife and mommy.

Thank you for your contributions and help in spreading the word!
