Ross and Elaine, I am so saddened by Kay's passing and so very sorry for your loss. Kay has always been like a surrogate aunt to both my brother and I. As a kid I loved going to visit Kay and listening to her tell me all about her travels to Greece and all over the world. It was like a history and geography lesson and I listened attentively I was also facinated with all her little nick nacks too cause every one of them had some interesting story to them and I would be mezmerised hearing all about their origin, where they were made, who made them, who gave them to her, how long she had them. Bless her heart she would never ever forget to send us birthday cards either even when members of our own family forgot. We love our Kay and will miss her so much. I remember too embroidering a small door hanging that said "God Bless Our Home" while I was going through my 1993 treatments and to this very day it still hangs on her door. You would think I gave her a million dollars when I gave it to her she was so touched telling me " Your so sick and your making things for me?" But that is how Kay was, she cherished those she cared about and appreciated the smallest of gestures. Know that my prayers are with you and hope that you hold fast to happy memories of Kay. I know I sure will.

May God comfort you during this sad time.
Rest in Peace *Auntie Kay" Fly with the Angels~
