Susan, girls and families, So sorry for the loss of Aunt Catherine. There is no sweeter lady in my memories. She never said a negative word about anyone and was always so cheerful. Just know she is your special angel now and will always be near. I am sorry I didn't make it to the funeral or calling hours. I twisted my foot Friday afternoon and cannot put weight on it. I fully intended to come to Morgantown Friday night, but just couldn't make it. Just know you are in my thoughts and prayers and I will be remembering the good times with your family. Uncle Dippy married Floyd and I and that is my favorite memory of them all. Love, Jonny

I am so sorry to hear about your mother. She was such a warm and friendly person. I talked with her often when you had the ceramic business andshe was always helpful and a wonerful person. Also having had several of her children in class, she was a wonderful mother. Remember the good times and she will always live in you memory.

I am so sorry for your loss. Catherine was such a sweet lady and I always enjoyed sitting on Granny Walker's porch with the Hicks family and talking and laughing. Those were some very happy memories. I know your family will miss her terribly. She had to be a strong woman to have endured all the losses she's had over the years. My heart goes out to you all.
