Rest in Peace Kay. We had some good times. Loved working with you at LR Nelson's. What a great person you were.
Penny, Shelly, & Bobby, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. She was a great person who always looked out of the good of others. I still remember staying the night at your house numerous times and having such a great time with your mom. I also remember going to Six Flags and getting sick in the first 10 minutes of being there. She was a great person and I hope that God is helping heal your hearts as you grieve the loss of mom. And, I am so sorry I could not make it back for her services.
Penny, Shelly and Bobby, my most heartfelt condolences to your families. I have many, many great memories of 'Aunt Kay'! She loved to laugh, that's for sure! I hope you can find some comfort in knowing how lucky we were to have such great Moms. RIH Aunt Kay---- Vicky Miller
