    Ms. Cathy is one o my dear friends. We taught together at Buckhorn Elementary school for many years. She is loved by every student she has ever taught. If I had a great grand children today I would want her teaching them.
    I know Cathy’s husband, children and mother and her family values are no different than the ones you see in her each day. I hope you know you have a treasure there.
