  1. Are you related to the Faheys of Tarrytown, New York? My mother, Catherine Connolly Grumman, was first cousin to Bridie Connolly Fahey. Caitlin is also a name in my family. Whether or no, it’s lovely that you play and teach my favorite instrument, the cello. Be well.

    1. Hello Irene–thank you for your comment! I don’t think I’m related to any Faheys in New York, although my mom (a Carbee) is from Long Island and has family all over the state. I wonder if there is a connection somewhere. 🙂

  2. Caitlin- we think of you often! Your gifts and patience with young children are astounding! The foundation you laid with our sons still remain. I’m so thankful that you helped raise our boys “Suzuki Method.” Those years made a lasting impact on both our children- both with different outcomes, but equally valuable.
