Dear Reeves family: I’m sad to learn of your Mothers death. She was truly a fine example of a Christian lady; we were blessed by both your parents. May you find the Lord’s comfort for your loss. I will not be able to attend the services. Dorothy Welch Aduddell, Tisha and Jeremy

Some of my best childhood memories are from the times spent at Katherine & Edgars with my parents while the adults played games. I will never forget the laughter. Prayers for comfort during this difficult time.

I always remember seeing Aunt Katheriene at family reunions in Spavinaw Oklahoma. Visiting with her sisters and brothers, playing dominoes and rook. Occasionally wahoo. Always went to the blue grass shows in Langley. Enjoyed the family gatherings and all the wonderful food. She loved the Lord and has her crown. You were loved Aunt Katheriene.
