My Aunt Catherine was there for my Mom when my Father Bill passed. It was always comforting for me to see her and hear her laugh. Some of my fondest memories growing up were going to her house on Sundays for dinner with my grandma Dodson, Roy and I would play with his creepy crawler maker, shoot bb guns, and ride his mini bike. I always knew when they visited because i would hear her laugh and smell his cigar. I never saw her angry and she was always smiling. RIP dear Aunt Catherine.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

She was and Lee too were one of the nicest neighbors a person could have . Kaine said " she could make one good glass of tea"! He should know he spent a lot of time there with her grandson Roy. She liked her game shows too. I spent many of an evening from 8:00pm to 3:00 am watching them with her. She loved putting her witches hat on at Halloween and "cackle " like a witch, and I would be sitting right there with her. Fun times and fun memories. I will miss her.
