Pam & Jeff, I thank you for sharing your mother with me as my #2 loving mother at the time we found each other on facebook after working together at 1st National Bank now as Sun Trust. But really as you two know it goes further back than that we all went to church at Taylors Methodist and all those times we had at Ballard Ball Park and your parents and my parents were great friends from way back in their days and now all 4 of them are having a wonderful reunion together now that mom Kay has completed the puzzle to join them. I really learned alot from Ms. Kay and I was also corrected by her on Facebook if she didn't like or think I worded or did something right to someone or I put myself down and you know that made me love her more and made me stop and think on her side of wisdom and knowledge and man I am going to miss her just like I do of my mom. I know she is glad to be in heaven now and is watching over her babies from above and I can still read some of our posts and have a piece of her still and have smiles and happy crys so thank you for your friendship then, now and pray to keep our friendship in the future like our parents always had. Love you and your families in Christ always. Prayers for you and your loving family and if I can help please contact me I am still here in Brunswick. Love all of you, Teresa

I worked with Kay at The First National Bank of Brunswick which is now known as SunTrust Bank. I was there 23 years and not sure how many years Kay was there. However,I like to think that we along with so many other bank workmates during those years help make the bank the strong bank it is today. I know she was a hard worker and we all worked hard and also had some good times. Those good times will be cherished as fond memories always.

So sorry for your loss. I have a lot of fond memories of Kay from the bank. She was a wonderful lady. I was glad to reconnect with her on Facebook. God bless. Reba Wright

I met Kay when her son Jeff was still with the Glynn County Police. I was a dispatch supervisor then. I almost immediately liked her as I liked her son. She was always a fiesty, sharp witted woman who always had a twinkle in her eye. After my wife Nancy and I joined Facebook, kay began commenting on our posts and our friendship continued on there. We will greatly miss her and will continue to pray for her family.

I did not know your loved one, Mrs. Kay Wentworth, but I wanted to say that she had to be a wonderful and intelligent woman. Anyone who has sense enough to "relish" Bill O'Reilly is a woman with great wisdom and thirst for knowledge of the real truth in this sad world.. The world will be a little sadder place without her but I too watch O'Reilly every night and will think of her when I do. God Bless you and your family, Grace Owens

I am sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Unfortunately we lost touch after high school. Please give my condolences to Junior and your family. Uncle Jimmy and my Mother, Betty Ruth Cowman, were brother and sister.
