Dear Pete and family,
I just heard today of Cathy's passing and am so sorry for your loss. She was the first smile and warm welcome to the neighborhood for us so many years ago. And you could always count on that smile and wave. I pray for you to find peace and comfort in loving memories.

She was a very wonderful and loving person, not to mention she was an incredible manager.I know she loved her family as she would share the special moments with us. You meant so much to her. We are praying that God will comfort all of you during this difficult time.

I first met Cathy when she came to work at our dental office. It didn't take long for us to become friends. Our lives were very similar, we both have 2 boys & a girl around the same age . When my husband died she was always there for me. Inviting me to meet for dinner & a movie on a Saturday night . She know how difficult the weekends were for me. The first Valentines Day after Joe died she came to work with a beautiful bouquet of flowers handed them to me with a big hug & wished me a happy Valentine's Day. I will cherish my memories of her . She will be forever in my heart. Rest In Peace my dear friend ! Lorraine

The Gaston Family,
I just learned late this afternoon of the loss of Cathy Please know that I am so so saddened to hear this terrible news When we moved we lost touch with you but Cathy was always a beautiful spirit and a friend whose company we thoroughly enjoyed From your Christmas Party's to our rides for holiday decorations Town meetings and just coffee with a dear funny friend she was a treasure I am so sorry

Cathy was one of the first people we met when my late wife, Mary, and I began building our "dream house" in the Woodland Run community here in Mullica Hill. Cathy was always friendly and cordial as we saw each other in those early days and we felt welcomed to the neighborhood by her kind words. We conversed frequently as we went through the pains, gripes, and frustrations of building a house, and shared our similar experiences. That was many years ago, and although our lives went in separate directions and our priorities were elsewhere, we never failed to exchange a friendly wave or comment when seeing each other in passing. It's truly a shame that we reflect much too late on the friendships that might have developed had we not been absorbed in our own interests. May Cathy rest in peace in God's loving arms; I extend my sympathy and condolences to Pete and their children, and may they find comfort and solace in the days to come.

Pete, Eddie, Peter and Courtney,
my heart is with you all during this difficult time. Cathy has been wonderful to me in the last 4 years I've worked with her. She not only was my co-worker, but my friend and I will definitely miss her presence. Please know if I can do anything at all for any of you, I am here.
God Bless,
Tina Etherton

Please take the time to leave a message. It is very comforting to hear how much my Mom meant to others. She was the best person in my life. I know how lucky I was to have her.

Dear Pete, Courtney and Peter,

There are no words to express our sadness and shock. Cathy was just one of those people who was a pleasure to know each and every day. She was a great patient, and friend. She made the professional relationship between dental offices special, always going the extra mile. Our hearts are broken for her family. She will be missed so much. 

With Deepest Sympathy,
Mark W. Nester, D.M.D , Keith G. Wyckoff, D.M.D, Carl K. Wyckoff III, D.D.S. and ALL of the girls in the office

Dear Sweet Friend,
You will be greatly missed. I can't thank you enough for giving me a new start in my life, at Exclusively Endodontics. We have laughed and cried together too. My prayers are with all of those, you loved and left behind. I know your an angel, watching over, them.
Stephanie, Candace, and Michael Pestrak
