Dear Barbara & Donnie
I have so many memories of your mother and my cousin. She has been my friend for a lot of years. No one knows how much I miss her and all always will. I just want you both to know she was a very special person. When she came to visit we had a lot of fun and talked a lot about our life when we were children. Lloyd and I will miss her very much. I already miss our phone calls. Love you all very much and so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the family to day. Love Joann

I can remember going to Aunt Cat’s house with the swimming pool. My brother and I had so much fun there. I remember her as being the most elegant lady I had ever met. Always dressed to perfection with such beautiful hair. Aunt Cat will be greatly missed. I am so glad I got to see her a couple of weeks ago. Much love and prayers to the family.
