I will end for now by posting her obituary (I will omit the parts with our names). The love and prayers are felt. There are no words that could express our gratitude for the way that you have all held us up through this journey.
(I also wanted to let you know that I have made my blog private for a while; but when I start writing again, I will open it back up.)
Cathy was born in Panama City, Florida in 1952, 2 months premature. From the start of her life, it was evident that God’s hand was upon her. She married her sweetheart John, in 1971 and they were blessed with three children. After raising her children, Cathy served as the Music Secretary at Mt. Gilead Baptist Church. She loved her work and served faithfully for 6 years until January, when her cancer forced her to resign. The only thing more important than her family was her relationship with Jesus. Throughout her life, she impressed on everyone who knew her an exceptional representation of God’s grace and love. Throughout her struggle with cancer, she allowed God to use her life to bring glory and honor to Him. What she desired more than anything was for her Lifesong to sing for Him. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to be made to Mt. Gilead Baptist Church (Walk Through Bethlehem) or Covenant Hospice of Dothan.
