Sister Cathy was such a very sweet lady and loved her church a t Westside Baptist Church. She was very special to me as her pastor for a few years and she showed her love to me and the church. I was saddened by her passing and I was in Florida and unable to get here for the service. My love and prayers for each of the family; I know you gain comfort in knowing she's with Jesus and loved ones gone before!!!

I have loved Mrs. Cathy since I was 11 years old. She was like a mother to me. I feel privileged to have known her and will always cherish all the time spent with her when I was younger. She was a wonderful woman. I know she is at peace now in heaven.
