Kay has been a neighbor and friend since 1978 when the Harrington family purchased the house diagonally across the street from her and Tom. My oldest son, Will, delivered the Boston Globe to Tom every morning after we had settled in the Gables full time. Kay was always interested in how things were going for myself, my late husband John, and our boys. It was great bumping into her on the street or in the grocery store and chatting about the goings on in the neighborhood. She will be sorely missed.
With sincere sympathy,
