Memorial Message

The following message was provided by Catherine’s loving mother, June Adams.

Dear Cathy:

Because someone chose to drink and drive that day
Cathy’s precious life was taken away.
God is the judge of this horrible highway slaughter
And the painful loss of a precious sister
And a beautiful caring daughter
In a better land one day
Cathy’s beautiful smile
Will show us the way

Painfully missed along life’s way
Your broken hearted family
