Jaci, what a beautiful biography of your precious mom. Don'tknow what it is about losing our moms, but it's different. Not losing her, just passing her on to live with Jesus
until we join her and other love ones one day.
You and Betty Ann have such great memories of the fun you've had together, cherish them!
Holding you close to my heart with love!

I only knew Kay for eleven years but I will always remember her kindness and gentleness. I think back to Kay managing to get in and out of my Mini Cooper as I took her and my mother in law to the local senior center.
After my mother in law went to live in a care home Kay never ceased in asking about her and sending her love to her. A special woman to those who knew her. She will be missed.
