    We are so sorry to hear of our neighbor, Cathy passing. Will miss seeing her in the Goodwill on senior shopping day. She was such a joy to be with and last year she gave up her spot on the women’s retreat for me to go. What a blessing I had with the girls. She told me this later and then realized we should have been room mates. Will be praying for you all. Love to You.

    Heart of gold –
    Loving and giving –
    Courageous –
    That was Cathy.
    I will cherish our final reunion in Indianapolis two weeks ago forever. Cathy, with her kind and generous spirit, made many things possible for me, and I will never forget her. My heart goes out to Ken and all her family, and to her dear friends Deana and Jim who have become mine. May blessings surround you all, and happy memories of Cathy bring you comfort. She has her angel wings now.

    My heart breaks for Ken and the family at this difficult. Cathy has been a friend since our elementary school years at Kyger and our daughters were friends in their high school years. I am going to miss her and the times we spent at “a great find” talking and at our class reunions and get-to-gathers.Prayers for your family. I will see out again some day my friend!

    Kip and family,

    I did not know Cathy well, and had not seen her in ages. Kip and Nathan went to school together, and we would always speak briefly at different sport events since the kids were in grade school. Thinking of the Skinner family at this sad time, however, I am sure it gives you comfort and peace to know she has seen the face of Jesus and no longer struggles. Lifting the Skinner family in prayer.

  24. Cindy McKinniss November 12, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    Kenny & family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am unable to attend the funeral services, but know that you are in my thoughts & prayers. Cathy was a very special person. Many fond memories of childhood school days. One in particular, Kenny, you & Cathy doubled dated with Joe & I at our senior prom. Wish we would have stayed more connected over the years. She was a beautiful person inside & out. My heart goes out to all of you during this difficult time. Praying God gives you comfort, strength & peace.
