    I am deeply saddened and heart-broken by the news of Catlin's death. I share my deepest sympathies and condolences to the family; especially Vicky, Krystin and his 3 boys...& to all who knew Catlin. He was one of a kind and will be sorely missed. I can't express how painful it is to lose such a dear friend at such a young age.

    Another brother laid to rest too young. The past few days I have been thinking about all of the great times we had growing up. Catlin was always wise beyond his years. It always seemed like he was in on a big secret and no one else knew it. I'll always remember the great times we had playing basketball for Saint Mary's all those years, hanging out with the crew in The Commons and cruising around the neighborhood in that gray two door Honda Civic. I know you are out there somewhere with that grin, looking at all of us sobbing and crying and calling us pansies. You lived a hard and fast life, now it's time to rest. Love you buddy.

    Hi my name is Kayla and I am a local bible teacher. I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. There is a very comforting scripture at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can all look forward to a time when death will be no more. I hope that this scripture can bring some true comfort during these difficult times.
