Kay also enjoyed playing bridge with friends. Her gentle manner and willingness to help others will be deeply missed.
A favorite passage of Kay’s was found in her journal: “Here I am Lord. It is I Lord. I have heard you calling in the night. I will go Lord if you lead me. I will hold your people in my heart.”
