Kay was a dear friend from the time we met while attending high school in Casper, Wyoming. I was blessed to be able to share so many memories both happy and tragic. No matter what life presented to Kay, she graciously accepted whatever faced her with unwavering faith to keep her going.

Kay's warm heart, silly jokes, infectious giggle, generosity, and warm personality will always be remembered!

My thoughts and prayers to Woody and Amy. May she rest in peace --

Always and ever in my heart -
