    Rob, Jimmie and Sarah,

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is a loss to us all. Cathy took generosity to whole another level. She was a woman of great wisdom and strength. Her stories moved me and her experiences inspired me. She could make you laugh with a sarcastic comment or make you cry with a tender tale.

    Other than the Lord, there was no greater love than her family. She spoke of each of you with pride and joy and the occasional witty ‘Mama and Grandma knows best” story. At work, she saved me on many occasions with a her supply of candy, a tide stick, safety pins, static remover or just about anything needed. I hope you will find comfort in knowing that she was loved and admired by so many people. She was a remarkable woman and she will be dearly missed.
