Betty, Linda, Glenn, Mary and I are ever so sorry for the lost of Cathy. Let not your hearts be troubled, for she has been brought before the throne of the one who will receive her with great joy now and forever more.

I am Kent Thomas's daughter. So sorry about your loss of Cathy. I had not seen her in several years but use to be around her when she and Warren Lee were little before I was married. She used to call my Dad a lot and he loved hearing from her. Just heard of her passing yesterday.
