Kay was a wonderful mother & friend to many, Kay’s chocolate chip cookies are the best ! - they were the “food” of choice to her sons Brian & his girlfriend Lorraine and for Wayne & his girlfriend Dorothy while they were at university so many years ago. We will never forget all the loving kindness of her home made food care packages.
Katie Rest In Peace - your job on earth is done , now get back to laying cards with your brother Joe & Ann give granny M a hug form us . Yes we will miss you but please know every time we see a bag chocolate chips or eat a chip cookie you will come to mind and a smile will let you know that we remember you. Much love my friend much love - Lorraine
