We will miss Kay.
She was so much fun to be with. Her Italian dinners, bloody Mary's and silly jokes; are so much fun to remember. Loved her ❤️ ♥️
We are so sorry for your loss! We knew her best from Facebook posts, but she definitely was a lovely lady and will be missed.
With deepest sympathy,
You were so lucky to have Kay. She had a wonderful sense of humor. She always made us feel welcome. I remember the cruise we took with Jim & Harry. Lots of laughs. She will be missed by her family and friends.
Kathy, my heart goes out to you and your family at the loss of your Mother. I didn’t know her, but I sure enjoyed reading about your adventures to Florida to visit her and the photos you have shared through the years. You have a wonderful family that I know you love with all your heart. May the many wonderful memories comfort you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. ♥️🙏♥️
May the hand of a friend always be near you and may God always fill your heart. ❤️🙏🏻
To be blessed as much as I have by her loving, caring and compassion was the greatest gift I have ever received. her empathy and wisdom to see and hear the heats of others was agiftgiven I have endeavored to pay forward in the gratitude of having her allowed me to have love and family.
