To the Voglewede Family,
My heart is breaking for you.
Kay was a wonderful, kind, loving, and generous friend. I will miss our trips to the beach, the lunches and long talks very much.
I know she is in heaven with her loving parents and brothers who went before her. I miss and love them all.
There is one heck of a game of cards going on up there right about now.

Lots of love forever,
Eva

Remembering Kay with warm feelings and thoughts of our time at St Roses. Never had the opportunity to thank her for her classroom leadership that pushed all of us ever higher. Sadly during our time at NASA we never met. She will be missed by friends and loved ones.

Peg, Joe, Carl, Mary and Chris, I am so sorry to learn of Kay's passing, and I will keep you all in my prayers during this time of your loss, and the pain you are feeling. Kay was a vibrant person, and so easy to laugh and get tickled by something, as I remember her. Kay now rests in the loving arms of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and is at peace. Love you all.
