Our deepest sympathy to the Tippett family and especially Bradley and Jane. I have known Catherine since I was a child and remember when she and her family moved to Oxford. They were a fine Christian family and we considered them family to us. We had fun visits with her at Brantwood and she started joking with us the minute we entered the door. I know of no one on this earth who has given of herself any more than she did. We will truly miss her - she is our loss , but HEAVEN'S gain. The angels are rejoicing. Our prayers and love.

You are very much in our prayers as you pass through this time of loss. What a full life of 92 years she had on this earth yet in very likely pales in comparison to the angelic choirs and glorious redemption of stepping into heaven!
