    Toni Wray Reynolds says: best ever neighborhood friend. I became part of Kay’s and Marsha’s “adopted” family. My favorite memory is her mom chasing around their house being the Frankenstein monster! We were supposed to be cleaning!!! She was a dear person and such a sweet, sweet heart! I will always remember so many crazy, growing up adventures! Prayers for her family as I am sure they will miss her loving spirit on this earth!
