I am totally shocked at the passing of Kay.  I worked with her for many years.  She was always up beat and a great person to be around.  She had such a great spirit.  She will be missed but always in our hearts.  God bless.

I will miss my friend, Kay was a special person. Kind and good, we need more people like her in this world. Now she can be with Vic. I am so sorry for your loss. But, the loss is Heaven's gain. Now you have another Angel watching over you.

Mike and I planned on visiting Kay a few months ago but when we got to the hospital, we were told she'd be out for testing the rest of the day.  Mike had some medical problems so we didn't get out for a visit when she was home.  She will never be forgotten because she was a wonderful human being, kind to all, a true child of God.  As my children grew up in her church, she always had a smile and a hug for both girls.  Knowing she is pain-free and safe in Heaven with Vic will be some comfort but she will be forever missed. Love to the family from all of us.

We were sorry to hear of Kay's passing. We graduated from high school with Kay and she and I were roommates in college. We lost touch over the years but did go to Vic's funeral. Later she heard I was seen in a wheelchair and sent me a very nice note. I was going to call her and never did. Now I wish I had. Due to some health problems I will not be able to attend her funeral. I will be thinking of the family and keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear the news.  We worked with Kay for many years and she was the soft-spoken one in the bunch to keep us calm in times of chaos.  She will be missed.  God bless her.
