  1. Dear Kay,
    I’ve met your mom several times and know her as a wonderful lady. I’m so sorry to learn of her death and send my deepest sympathy.
    My mother has been gone for 26 years, and yet I think of so many things that I want to share with her.
    It’s going to be hard to have her gone, I know.
    Love,
    Joy Vining

  2. For many years it was such a pleasure to be greeted by this special lady when entering St Paul United Methodist Church. Please know I am thinking about you at this sad time for your family.

    With sincere sympathy,
    Helen Murley
