My heart is breaking for you. I'm so sorry I didn't see this in time to go to the service this morning. Catherine, I have such fond memories of you as my "little sister" in 1983 when I lived with your family. We'll be praying for you and your children and all of the family who are grieving now.

I will always remember growing up as kids playing in the ditches full of water, putting ham on the end of a string to catch crawdads. Scaring your youger brother Nick and watching him run. Running around the bases to get warmed up for the Green tigers first home game. Building wood log camps on my driveway days after my dad freshly cut them. Having the excitement calling you to say I'm getting married and having you as my best man. And most of all you being there to support me when our baby girl left this Earth to be with the Lord. So this all said, bubba I love you, and miss you. You will always be my brother.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing you for very long, but you were always kind and encouraging. We miss you, but know that you are having a wonderful reunion with your cousin and others that have gone before you.
