Jean and I are so sorry for your loss. We are in Conn and can not attend the wake. Cay has now joined her friends and will be reminiscing with. I sure she is plaing cards with my mother and father, (Jeannette & Omer).
Jean and Andy Lavigne.

I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to Catherine’s children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and her great great grandchildren. I was honored to know her during my short time with the family.
I think the Lord brought her to my mind just a few days ago when I told a friend that she made the best turkey stuffing I’ve ever had - in my life!
I’ll be thinking of you all during these next days and praying for peace...
