  1. Sweet, sweet Nanny. I will miss hearing your ring tone light up Kip’s phone. You were always a pleasure to speak to and will be missed.

  2. Jenni Hardin says:

    I’m so sorry to hear about your mama, Kenny. God bless, and I pray for strength and peace for you and your family.

  3. Susan Mccall says:

    I am so happy that I know Cathy loved Jesus because one day I will laugh with her again and this makes her passing into Gods glory bearable. She was one of the kindest women I’ve ever known. I personally know of many many lives she touched in such loving ways. May her memory bring everyone who knew her moments of gratitude as they reflect on her life. She was someone special in this world and will be missed by all her knew her.

  4. Our hearts are so very heavy right now because of the loss of our sweet and wonderful friend and neighbor Cathy, it is with heavy heavy hearts and our deepest sympathy for your loss. Cathy will be well and deeply miss, but she will always remain in our hearts and the family in our prayers.
