Cathy, Jenna and Al---just a note to say my prayers are with you all today. Woke up thinking of you and Mrs. Allred. Remember many nights at Cathy's in high school and how sweet she always was, plus times spent in more recent years, like in Colorado at Melissa's wedding. SO glad she was there. She always had a great attitude, a smile and was a positive person to be around. She will be deeply missed, and I know she's looking down on us from heaven. Love to you all, Terri
