  1. Liz and Paul and families. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to all of you in your loss and wish we could be there for you. Aunt Kaye was a great person and I always admired all she accomplished. She loved you all very much and in her letters to Mom was so proud of you When I was young I wanted to be a nurse so I could be just like her. Love and prayers to all of you.

  2. After hearing of Aunt Kay’s passing, I began to have a flood of memories that I shall always cherish. First but foremost is kowing that God always has a plan for our lives even to the point of the people he puts in our path. My memories of Aunt Kay are of a compassionate and caring Aunt. She always found the good in all things. She was in my life when I feel that I needed her the most encouraging me and letting me know how special I was. I especially remember our numerous holidays with Aunt Kay. First, knowing that we were going to see our cousins, Liz and Paul but knowing Aunt Kay was bringing the pumpkin pie. She made the best pumpkin pie ever! As time passed, life seemed so crazy. When time permited to call Aunt Kay her response was always “well hello Kathy”. Aunt Kay was such a special person in my life and today I come to realize that she is now at peace with our Lord and Saviour. I thank God for allowing me to have such a special Aunt.

  3. Aunt Kay may you rest in peace,you will be missed.Love always

I see your wonderful smile and hear the funny way you said my name everytime i think about you. May you rest in peace with no more pain. Liz and Paul we are here for you even this far way. Our prayers are with you at this time. She lived her life to the fullest.
