You are in our thougths and prayers. We are so sorry to hear about Cathy. May she be at peace now. We will always remember our fun times together at events in Stone Creek Cove.

Dan, I am heartbroken to learn of Cathy’s passing. She was a true and loyal friend way back to junior high, through high school and college, your wedding, our kids. Though years and miles came between us, I have never doubted our friendship. I am so happy we were able to see each other last fall. She looked so great and was such a cheerleader for Julie. My heart aches for you, Dan. I know the pain Cathy endured, and you right along with her. I can only hope that she has had a warm reunion with Carol, that Jim was there to give her a hug, and it didn’t take long to deal the cards. Know I’m thinking of your whole family with love. Fondly, Gayle

Dan and family,

I am so very sorry for your loss. I remember Cathy from when I was a young girl. She was so nice, always a beautiful smile on her face and kind words for all. I hope that our Lord brings you comfort and peace at this time.
