15 years ago, my mom befriended this amazing woman I grew so very close too. I was young at the time and she always made me feel like I wasn’t her “friends’ little kid”. I grew to call her “Chili” because she simply made it one time and the name just stuck! She would play board games with me, laugh with me, and always be there for me when I needed someone. She was honestly, my partner in crime. Not only was she there for my mom, and my mom there for her, but she was also such a big supporter in anything I did, and in the end, I grew to realize she was one of my biggest fans. She always strived to make everyone around her smile and laugh. She was known to always start humming some random tune while in her own little world. Being my mom’s business partner made her pretty much a part of the family. Curves not only shaped many of the women’s lives they both touched, but also gave them such happiness in seeing other people reach their goals. They worked so well together and strived off their members success. This world simply won’t feel the same without her beautiful soul present. I will sure miss you laughing at the stupid things I say, my mom getting a phone call because there is a cat emergency (ha, happened more time than you would think), and most of all, you reminding me how strong I am, and I can do anything I put my mind too. You will be deeply missed. I’ll miss you Chili. I’ll make you proud.

I couldn't have asked for a better co-worker than Kayt. Always greeted you with a smile and was willing to help out with the job or a quick joke. I will miss you.

Kayt was one of the most genuine, kind hearted and generous people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing in my entire life. Our world and her family and friends have truly lost a special soul. Till we meet again Kayt...

I am so grateful that we were able to have our “cousin parties” and the renewed connection they provided. I wish I could be with you all. Hopefully we can be together soon.

Kay T you were a wonderful friend to me from the moment we met at UCONN. You were a great musician with amazing tone and anytime we spent together was filled with music and laughter. Luckily we spent time together as adults too visiting and enjoying life, and eventually lost touch except for Facebook. I am so sorry I did not know you were sick and I will always remember you. Love your friend, Sue Johnston.

KayT will always be with us in Spirit at the Lizzio reunions. She was always one of the first to respond. Hugs to be delivered in August.
