Cathy Cooper was my sister's sister-in-law and so I knew her a little bit. From what I did know, she was a very sweet and tender woman. I am so saddened by the news of her passing and have been praying for her family. RIP.

My heart breaks for her family and especially Gary and Kaylee! Cathy is gone from our world too soon! But she is happy and rejoicing with Jesus in Heaven I am sure! She is one of the kindest and sweetest souls I know - and her love of God was certainly a light that shone through her always! It was evident to everyone that met her that she loved God and could share his light and love just through her smile and kind words. Love you both and prayers of love and comfort.
