I remember Cathy from when I was a little girl going into Gowan's almost every day with my mother. She was very sweet and kind to me. I moved away from the area, so I hadn't seen her in many years. So sorry for your loss. May the Lord heal your broken hearts.

Thinking of you all. I use to go see Cathy at Gowen's drug store, she made a good grilled pimento cheese sandwich and tomato soup with a smile always!

It's hard for me to recall a memory of Cathy in which she is not laughing out-loud, or even smiling out-loud. Even when she was just smiling, you knew she was laughing on the inside. . . . "Lord, Please hold this family really close to you during this time. Comfort them hour by hour, day by day. Amen"

Cathy was an Amazing person. She was so special to me, so glad we are family! She was always there for advice if needed. We shared a lot of laughter and fun times that will always be treasured.
