(by ANNA WALTERS Reporter, Amherst Bee) At 4 years old, Catherine Gildiner was a spirited co-pilot.
She worked beside Roy, a deliveryman who was her father’s employee, distributing prescription narcotics throughout the Niagara Frontier.
She remembers when they’d collect chestnuts in the fall at Devil’s Hole State Park. Gildiner says Roy would use the chestnuts to make necklaces for her.
“It now seems like a cherished moment when then it was something we did in the day,” she said.
Gildiner is the author of the memoirs “Too Close to the Falls” and “After the Falls.” Recently, she released her final installment, titled “Coming Ashore.”
