    I am so very sorry to hear of Kay’s passing. Glad to read she was in church, so she is in the arms of our Lord and Savior. Kay and I were friends while she was still in high school. She and her mother introduced me to my husband in 1972. We are married and live in Sanford. I often wanted to try to reconnect with her. I truly regret that I did not follow that through. The family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Family, I was so sorry to hear about Kay. I had met her at her Aunt Barbara’s house for a 4th of July celebration. I worked with Tommy at GTE – Toll Center. May God Give You Comfort and Peace During This Difficult Time! My Thoughts and Prayers Are With You!
