Kay was a lovely and kind person who simply touched people with her smile, gentleness and sincerity. Kay was a "throwback" to days gone past when people were real and good, and would always have a good word to share. Having left New England w/a heavy heart some 16 yrs. ago, she was one of the folks I always inquired about because her inate goodness always made me feel good about the world and myself- God Bless you Kay and love and comfort to your family- we were all blessed to know her.
