Dear Phil, We were so sorry to hear about Cathy passing away. We have intended to stop and visit you and never got around to doing it. I had heard she was ill and not doing well. Our thoughts and prayers go with you and your family as you go through this big loss in your life. Cathy always had a smile and was always so pleasant whenever I would see her.

Dear Phil and Jeff,

We are saddened to hear of the death of Cathie. I spoke with her many times in the past to schedule rides for hospital patients and she was always so kind and had a great laugh! My dad wanted me to be sure to extend his sympathy as he still has fond memories of driving the van for you and Cathie was always kind to work with him. Please accept our sympathy in your loss.
