    I am so saddened by this news. My prayers are with the entire family especially Angel, Bobby Dean and D Daddy. Caitlyn was my daughter, Lee Ann’s, best friend after we moved to Beaufort and lived next door to Bobby and Patsy. At the age of 3, Caitlyn and Lee Ann were inseparable every time she stayed at D Daddy’s. We felt like Caitlyn was part of our family. I remember her as a smiling, laughing, playful child. May God give you comfort and peace as you remember this precious child and her life.
