Dear Cassady Family--
I am forever grateful for the special kindness that Marc (Pop), Kathaleen and your family showed me so many years ago. God places people in our paths to help us through seasons-you all were that for me. I have very fond memories and so appreciate both of their examples of Christian faith. I continue to walk with the Lord today because of them. Their last breaths on earth were their first breaths in Heaven. I take much comfort in that. I hope you all do as well. Thank you for sharing your family with me!
Dr. Kathy (Crowell) Wren

I knew both your parents from the high school band program. Fun to be around, and I loved the flower starts that your mom gave me. My prayers are with you and your family.
