  1. My prayers go up for your family. I have sweet memories of going over to the house to see Cathy and talking to her mom. She always made me laugh. I know she loved her girls! May you all find comfort and peace knowing she is with the Lord and may your sweet memories of her take the edge off your grief and loss.
