Deanie and I taught with Sophie, Cathy's mother, at McCrory High School when our son, Mark was born. We knew Cathy through her Mother and Dad. They were all such delightful people and we cherished their friendship so very much. We are so sad to hear of Cathy's passing. Rest assured that you have our thoughts and prayers at this time of sadness in your lives. God bless you and keep you close to his heart and may he give you peace.
