Vivian, Sean, Kaitlin and Meaghan, we're sure today will be an emotional day, with much sadness but hopefully many nice memories as well. Bethie and I will be thinking of you. We didn't know Mrs. Kouromichelakis well, but we do know she had an awesome family and must have felt immensely blessed.

Hugs from Bethie and me!

Love the picture of Kay! That is how I remember her. Always smiling. From the moment I walk into the doors, I've been welcomed with so much love, so many hugs, laughter, joy and food. She had such a BIG heart. Sending you all love, prayers and strength.
