Fred and Family...We are so saddened to hear of Cathy's passing. It was always so much fun to be with her, it seemed she was always smiling that delightful smile, great conversation, a good friend. Unfortunately we will be out of state and unable to attend her service but know that we will be with you in thought and prayer. May God grant you and your family comfort knowing that she will be missed.
