    We are so sorry to just now be learning of Kay’s passing, as we were out of town the entire month of October. We remember Kay first because of her friendliness and kindness. I was in Sunday School with her for several years, and she was someone who was always up to date and prepared for our discussions. Additionally, she was a wonderful cook and excellent housekeeper. She loved her husband, children and grandchildren passionately. We were also out of town when Ned passed away and did not return until after his funeral, either. Two wonderful people who welcomed us into their home on numerous occasions. They will be forever missed and forever remembered/
