    Aunt Kay was a great woman, wife, mother, sister, friend and aunt. She will be missed by anyone who truly knew her. I really enjoyed our visits especially the past few years at camp or when we were in Florida. She always had plenty of room in her home if you were coming to Florida for a visit and made you very comfortable. She was a big help when I broke my ankle while on vacation. There are so many things I will always remember about Aunt Kay. Until we meet again Kay. Love you!

    With the few experiences I had with you, you felt like my lifelong friend. So thankful I got to meet such a sweet and amazing person. We got along so well and were always finding something to laugh and banter about. Will always hold onto our memories.
