    Kay and I worked together for over 25 years. She was such a wonderful friend. We both have a love for our kitties and would swap stories. We had planned to get together soon. I will miss her very much. Much love and prayers for Ron and the family.

    I was so sorry to hear of Kay’s passing. I just saw her the end of August at my retirement party. She looked great and seemed very happy in her life. My thoughts and prayers are with Ron and the family. She could be quite mischievous back when we worked together! Many memories of Kay.
