    So sorry to hear of your loss. Our friendship went back to Mercy School days and then to St Joan of Arc. She was a special girl, woman, wife and mother. She will be remembered in prayers. God bless all of you as He certainly has blessed Kay.

    Kay’s family and Shelia
    I was sad to hear of Kay’s passing but she can go be with Tim now. Had many good times and laughs back when were all so young.
    She is in my prayers.

    There are simply no words to express how sorry we are for your loss. , Your Mom was always the center of activities she knew everyone and her kitchen was many times the meeting location. We loved her and will miss her smiling face and laughter. We are currently out-of-town and so sorry we couldn’t be there for all of you.
