A very handsome Michael was my first serious crush and high school boyfriend. We met when I was in ninth grade running a dance at Plant Junior High School in West Hartford, CT, and he was a Junior at Hall High School and playing music at the dance with his buddies in their band, the “Sharps”. He asked me to dance during the band break, and I was in heaven. He found me walking home the following Monday, gave me a ride and so it began! To our great surprise, we lived only four houses away and across the street. I was so proud to be Michael Kay’s girlfriend!! Michael’s sense of humor and amazing wit were beyond compare! He was smart, loving, creative and a gifted musician! My wonderful memories of my first real boyfriend would fill a book. We were blessed to reconnect just a few years ago and shared some laughs over Chinese food with my family around the kitchen table at the same old house on Fern St. Despite not being completely well at the time, he was able to sit down at the baby grand in the living room and play my Mom’s favorite song, “The Man I Love”! It brought big smiles to all of our faces and is a moment that will remain in my heart forever! Rest In Peace my very special friend💕🎹🎼😘

My memories of Michael Kay go back to our years in junior high and high school. He, JoAnne Rydel and I used to walk to school together and Michael would always keep us laughing. He used to love to parody the letters to Ann Landers, and his versions would always start with, "I have a problem in the form of..." He was funny without being mean and smart without being pedantic. All of my memories of Michael are fond ones.
