Catherine. Preacher Cooper always referred to his daughter in laws as his out law family members. But we knew how very proud he was of each of us. Catherine was always a light of pure joy. I have missed her greatly for such a long, long time. The one thing I miss the most is Catherine's sweet prayers. Our Lord has another bright light in His presence today. I love you Catherine, I love you so very much. Always Carol Beheler (Cooper)
