Kay was a wonderful friend and co-worker for the Ks Retail Dealers Association. We shared lots of hard work and good times together. She and Bill were a great part of Tom and my lives and they will be remembered forever.

This is my favorite picture of my Mom, even though her eyes are closed. It's a natural pose.

All of the strength and stubbornness I possess, I got it all from you. Love you Mom
