    Sorry to hear of your loss. She was a great example for her family and friends. God bless her family, who were at her side for the journey to the end of her time on earth. Her walk with the Lord is far greater than any walk on this earth. Much love to all of you. Patty and Bill Cooper

    So sorry, Pat, Sue and Helen.
    Had I known of Aunt Catherine’s passing, I would have been in attendance of her remembrances’.

    Mom was the 1st spoke in the wheel missing. Your mom is the last spoke. Amen. Remember we had a lot of good times! Seems like the best times were when none of us had much more of anything except hope!
