    (((Dougie))) and Family,

    I am saddened by your loss. May God comfort you all. Cherish your memories. Love, Barbie xo
    ” When somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel, and flies up to tell God to put another flower on a pillow. A bird gives the message back to the world, and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry. People disappear, but they never really go away. The spirits up there put the sun to bed, wake up the grass, and spin the Earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the daytime, when they’re supposed to be sleeping. They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets and make waves splash and tug at the tide. They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes. And when they sing wind songs, they whisper to us, don’t miss me too much. The view is nice and I’m doing just fine. “

    You were my hero papaw. You helped me in more ways that I could have ever imagined. You always told me how proud you were of me. I know you knew I was there the moment you took your last breath. You squeezed my hand and then you were gone. I love you so much papaw and you will be greatly missed. I know you are with my mamaw now, the love of your life. I’ll see you again one day.
    Love always,
    Kimmy (A.K.A. Berly)

    All of us who work with Cathy humbly offer our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. Although we did not get to know Mr. Schenck as well as his friends and family, our interaction with Cathy speaks volumes about the man he was. If there is anything we can do to comfort you please let us know.
