    The stories Kay told me about her childhood, her mom and sister would leave me doubled over in tears laughing my head off. Kay knew how to tell a story and she was hilarious. And her heart was as big as her humor. Kay, without fail, would send us a box every Christmas filled with the most scrumptious treats. A little note was always included with something like ‘some sweet, some savory, and some made with booze cause those are always fun.’ One time, when we were neighbors, she brought over homemade soup because she knew we were having a rough day. That was Kay. Kay got life. She knew what was important. She made life fun and so special. And despite her diagnosis, despite the unknowns, despite the discomfort, she rolled with it, Kay style. She was one tough and sassy gal. I love you, Kay! And I’ll never forget you. Love to Fleet and to Kay’s sister Xoxo

She loved her family & friends so much and enjoyed every part of her life! I admire Kay for the strength, great attitude & positivity that she displayed through her sickness. It was truly an honor to be her hygienist! I will miss you Kay
