Im sending my deepest condolences to Kay's family. I'm so saddened to learn of Kay's passing. Kay was the first friend I ever had in school when I moved to Kentucky in 1959. I thought of her often. Just wish we could have visited through the years. We just let life get in the way. RIP my friend. God Bless the family.
