    I can't tell you how saddened we are hearing this devastating news. Kay was the sweetest, bestest lady, neighbor and friend to us. we have had so many laughs over the years, but also some very deep conversations. She was a great listener. and i'll never forget her dad and mine reminscing on your Winberry deck. Or the Friday nites in the culdesac. Many many good and happy memories of your family. Our heartfelt condolences go out to all of you.
