Nicholas Scott Catone Memorial Fund

On Thursday May 11, Nick Catone tucked his healthy, beautiful little boy Nicholas in to bed to the sound of him saying " Goodnight Daddy ". In the morning, Marjorie Catone went to wake the baby who lit up every second of her life- the little light filled spirit who made everything worthwhile. And in that moment, everything shattered. Nicholas simply did not wake up.

In the face of a terrible, tragic loss, there is nothing you can say to ease the despair of a parent who has lost a child. " I am so sorry " never feels like enough.
For Nick and Marjorie, and their beloved daughter Madeline, the world has fallen in. Although funeral arrangements are made, many people have asked what they can possibly do to help. As their friend, I have started this Memorial Fund to offset the cost of arrangements that no parent should have to make, and in lieu of flowers, ask you to donate to.
A scholarship for the care and education of Nicholas's sister Madeline will be founded with any remaining funds.
