Have such fond memories of Cassie and Bill through the East Dayton years. They were such good friends to my dad and mom, Roscoe and Christine. She was such a friendly, gracious and caring lady who loved the Lord. I remember how she always went out of her way to help GM employees with their questions! God bless her family during this home going time.
Cassie was my life long friend and attended our wedding in 1954. She, Bill and my husband, Gene, shared many memories together over the years. Then when we had our children, our family would enjoy times with Cassie, Bill and Barry We will miss our friend Cassie and look forward to the day we see her and Bill (and Gene) in eternity.

Cassie was one precious lady that I loved. Her husband Bill was also a great man. To all the family I’m so sorry but I know she lived a full rich Godly life. To her niece Diane Massie I also wanted to extend my condolence from my brother Paul and Carla Cravens. He said you all had been friends since high school days. I’ll be praying for all of you.
