Dear Bud, Angie, and Annie,
I'm honored that I had the privilege of being reacquainted with Cathy this past year at the Leesburg Church of Christ. I enjoyed shaking her hand and sharing a kind word or two with her most Sunday mornings. Truly going to miss those times. Thinking of you guys in your time of loss.
With thoughts and prayers,
Randy Lewis
