I forgot to tell you Mom (I know you already know) we got another kitty. Since Ginger returned to your arms,we have felt an emptiness in our home so we adopted "Kaydee", a beautiful 2yr old little girl. Like Ginger, her start in life was not good and it's taken a while for her to lose her fear and to trust us, but she's made remarkable progress. You would love her!!

Avia & family,
I was very saddened to hear of Kay's passing. She was a wonderful woman and a pleasure to work with. Cherish the memories you had with her.

Dear Avia, Dennis and family: It is with heartfelt feelings I offer my deepest condolences for Kae, for whom I have known to be a wonderful and spirited lady. You must know Kae is in a wonderful place at peace and please take comfort in knowing she will be looking over all of us.

Love Annette

I was saddened to hear of Kae's passing. I have wonderful memories...her words, her laughter and hospitality. I first met Kae in 1967 when I commenced work in Psychiatry as a new RN. We spent a number of evenings in her home and swimming pool with friends and family members. Kae and Betty Maroon were there when I married my former husband. In December 1974 I moved to Australia yet each time I returned to Windsor Kae and I were able to 'catch up' with one another for several years. In recent years I have often wondered about Kae and others from those days in Psych. I hold good memories of a wonderful woman.
