THE STREETS OF JACKSON HEIGHTS ARE MISSING MRS. DAVIS! (also Jahn's)
The nice lady with the beautiful white hair who cruised around, at first alone then with a shopping cart followed by "the Walker"... A few years ago on a very cold day I met Kay while shopping in Rite-Aid. We gabbed awhile and then she said she had to pick up her dinner. At Burger King on 82nd St., Mrs. Davis's order would be prepared as soon as she walked in the door. Everyone there knew exactly what she liked. We walked home together that day and I believe it was the last time that we were "On The Avenue"!
I too admire Kay's sense of style in her clothing and home design. Her numerous collections are Grand. I especially enjoyed the egg cups. The only person I ever saw eat out of one, was my Grandfather. He had one and Kay had twenty.
Just a note to Mrs. Davis, not too worry. All of Patty's friends and family will be watching over her, as I know you will be....
All my Love and Respect - Mary

Dear Patty,
l owe so much to your Mom. All those teen years spent sleeping over at your house saved me from going to Yankee Lake and, God forbid, missing a St. Bart's Dance. Those sleep overs were great fun and your Mom's warmth and generosity had a lot to do with it. How she put up with our late night antics I will never know and in the morning, serve us blueberries and whipped cream! Then there was her sense of style. Stepping into your house was an eye opener for all your friends to a world of good taste, color, and a sense of decorating we had never been exposed to. How could one not love a woman who introduced you to toile?
And yet your Mother never displayed a sense of superiority. She was down to earth, easy to talk to and she had a great sense of humor, all traits she passed down to you Patty. I am so grateful to your Mom for getting me an apartment in Jackson Heights. That was a tremendous help to me. There are many things I admired about "Mrs. Davis" ; her painting, her politics, her role as a working woman and, more importantly, a very loving Mom. All these gifts she gave to us and of course, last but not least, the best present of all......you.
Storm heaven!
Patty
