Cathy's haunting message to son's brutal attackers
Cathy McCauley, who spent 30 years helping people with brain injuries, ironically had to watch as her son Paul was left in a vegetative state after being brutally assaulted in Londonderry.
He died last year, nine years after the assault and that was a consolation to Cathy, who feared she and her husband Jim might die first, leaving Paul with no one to care for him. Cathy, too, died this week but her words that no one ever said sorry - even anonymously - about what happened to her son echo from beyond the grave and should shame those who withhold information about the attack. Meanwhile, think of Jim, who has buried his wife and son within a year.
