    Cathy called me after having not talked for 25 years and was still the same as I remembered! Condolences to the family.

    Larry & Family – Words cannot express the deep sorrow we have in our hearts for your loss. Can’t remember a time when we came back to Illinois for a visit when she didn’t have a smile on her face and a story to tell. Her laugh was infectious and she genuinely cared for others……We will continue to pray for your family that GOD may relieve the heavy burden you feel, heaven has added another angel to the ranks.
