Friendships Etched in Stone

Cathy Whittington and Dave Chance, fast friends since their days working at Superior Marble and Stone.

Dave met Cathy Whittington when they worked together at Superior Marble and Stone. The two have been fast friends ever since. Dave and I always enjoy getting together with Cathy and her husband Bill. Sometimes we go out, but what we love most is when they invite us over for a home-cooked meal. Cathy Whittington is an extraordinary hostess and cook!

Her hostessing prowess probably comes from her years of dedicated work as a flight attendant. She knows how to put people at easy and anticipate their every need.

Dave and I visited Cathy and Bill in their Suffolk home before Christmas.

Following that, we also took a trip over to Superior to say “hi” to Dave’s former boss, Mary Thompson.

Seeing my photo hung on the wall reminded me to tell you this story:

Cathy joined the staff at Superior in the weeks Dave and I were away on two-week trip to Italy (sponsored by Superior). Dave called in to the business several times while we were traveling. One day Buddy and Mary asked if we’d been to Pisa yet.

When Buddy said he’d like a picture of me with the leaning tower, we spun the car around and headed for Tuscany.

A picture Dave took of me hangs in the Superior showroom to this day.
