  3. Carla and Rich, I was so sorry to hear about Cathy’s passing. …I was just getting to know her a little: she seems like she has been a wonderful woman with a good sense of humor, great spirit and devotion to her family. We will miss seeing her here at the lake. Let me know if there is anything I can do and know that you and your family are in my prayers. Love, Joan

    We send our sympathy to Cathy’s family. We were High School classmates in Blissfield and will always remember the fun times we had. Cathy was good at keeping in touch and attended class reunions until she wasn’t able to any more. She loved Jesus and is with Him now. Glory!
    Sincerely, Sandy and Fred Hall

  5. I met both Ernie and Catherine through walmart in Adrian, finding how we’ve been in some of the same towns like how I worked at the Gaylord Walmart. We recently moved back to Michigan and sad to hear and see of both their passing. They were always a blessing to talk with and will be greatly missed.
