I loved Mrs. McKay. She was my Mom's best friend and I grew up right across the street from her. She was the best cook! I still make the chicken casserole with the potato chips on top!

I am so sorry for your loss, Phylis and Ted! But, I am so happy to believe that our Moms are in Heaven, chatting up a storm!
