"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"

"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."

"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"
