I had asked Siri to remind me on 3/23 to write a note on this site. He did. I couldn’t. It’s been a year since Kay’s passing, but it feels like yesterday for all of us who knew and loved her.

I had seen Kay on her 80th birthday in the skilled nursing facility. She was in a great mood; we were laughing, she let me do her make up, I sang her a ditty that I had made up about her fall while trying to put on her pajamas and I gave her a bad time about being older— some thing I had done for nearly 40 years. She enjoyed every second as did I. Little did I know that I would never see her again.

I miss my beautiful, talented, kind friend. I will always love her. She was my” Chicka boom” soulmate. How lucky was I to have known her, to have known the Potters. How lucky were we all, indeed.

(The photo below was taken on my birthday. All I wanted was a photo of the three of us. That gift was and is priceless. Sorry, Ellen, I can’t get rid of the word “Auto.”)

Kay was such a interiorly beautiful person -- and she inspired so many of us who worked with her.
I appreciated her integrity, her dedication to teaching with excellence and the way she so humbly referred to her musical gifts.
I am so grateful that Jim is with her now.
I'm sure they are playing piano, singing together and dancing to "The One Shoe Bear" song in heaven.
They were one of a kind!
God bless Kay and Jim!
Love, Wendy

Kay was such a positive and fun-loving person. I first met her when my oldest son was in 2nd grade. I helped backstage for the play she was directing. What a whirling-dervish - she was everywhere at once! I loved her spirit. When I became a teacher, our paths crossed again and I will never forget those special “Friday Morning Sings” when she did the hand motions to a Russian folk song as the rhythm became faster and faster! What fun. Rest In Peace, dear Kay.

So surprised to see Kay had very sad. She was always so happy and upbeat and fun to be around! Will always remember her playing piano and leading the singing for the Ed. Services party at our house. Will also be forever grateful that she agreed to do the music when my mother-in-law passed away. Our prayers to Jim and family.

My special friend! I treasure the years of Sunday mornings performing with you. Christmas Eve services were tremendous fun. Many happy evenings practicing at your piano. I loved the story about your father and his banjo, and was proud to repair and play it for you. Whenever you needed me to accompany you, you did not have to ask twice. Your students were fortunate beyond words to have such a wonderful, encouraging teacher.
