Cathy, I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I so remember all the times that I was at your house when we were in school. And the trip that I went on with yall to Cherokee. Your mom was the sweetest. I loved her so much. Hugs and prayers to all of you.

Dear Cathy and family, I have such fond memories of staying with you at your Mama and Daddy's house. I always thought Aunt Ruby made the best mashed potatoes.

In later years, we spent lots of time with your Mama and Dougie sitting on her back porch talking and reminiscing. My Mama was with us then too. I remember feeling so much love sitting there; listening and talking too.

I am so sorry for your loss Cathy. Your Mama was always so kind and loving. I know I don't have to tell you that though.

May God's peace comfort and surround you and your family.

Love you,
Donna Jo
