My husband, Ronnie Farmer, has many fond memories of growing up with Kay, Janice, Greg, and Gary. Visiting the family in Tennessee holds a special place in his heart.
My memories of Kay are more recent. Since becoming friends on Facebook, she has always been one of the first to comment with love and compassion about my children, grandchildren, brother, and other family members. She always brought a smile to my face as she would write, “Love you cuz or Mabel and Andy would have loved those grand babies.”
Love and comfort to her family!
Ronnie and I made a donation to the American Diabetes Association in honor of Kay Ussery Ball.

Oh Kay Ball how I'm going to miss you!!! I know I will get through this time in my life but right now it is so hard. You were the strongest woman I knew. You fought a long hard fight. I am so relieved you are at peace. I look forward to seeing you again in a better place. Forever in my heart!!

Kay did a lot of things in her life but the most important thing she ever did was to give me a beautiful niece , Teresa, and a wonderful nephew
Michael and they will always have plenty of love as long as I am alive.
