Kitty, as she was known by all, was the most wonderful Christian lady I've ever known. She knew so much of the Bible and could answer any questions I had. She was a prayer warrior for me during my husband's sickness and death. I'll miss her but know she is rejoicing with God.

Ms. Kitty has loved our family for many years. While my husband was on staff at FBC Decatur, she and Ray were always encouraging and sharing hugs with us. When our oldest child was born, Ms. Kitty received her name to pray for her. She was faithful to send our daughter a Birthday Card and reminder of her prayers every year. She made a lifelong impression on us. We will miss your thoughtful cards Ms. Kitty. Thank you for faithfully and graciously loving us.

I have many good memories of Miss Kitty. I will miss her terribly. She was such an encourager to me after my mom died. She has received her reward in heaven.
