So sorry to hear of Kay's passing. Our sincere condolences for the entire family.

Assuming the funeral/memorial will most likely be carried out sometime between tomorrow and Sat., we will all be out of town for a long planned family get together, and therefore, will be unable to attend.

Kay sure was a "cracker jack," meant in the most loving way, as I am sure all know. She knew how to laugh, and how to make others laugh. We will see her again on the other side, and that is the most comforting thing of all.

Our prayers will be with family and friends she left behind for the coming days, without Kay.

May the Almighty God bless and keep you everyone.

Gene, Carolyn, and Rebecca
