We are so sorry for your loss. Both of your parents were such great neighbors and friends to my parents as well as our whole family. I hope that the good memories you have will sustain you through this time. They were great people. I am sure my parents are enjoying a backyard converstion with them at this very moment. Your family is in our prayers.

On behalf of Jim, "little" Jim & I, we are so very sorry for your loss. We loved Kay and will always have all the great memories (learning how to play poker, corned beef dinners or just great conversation) in our hearts. I believe Gordy welcomed her with open arms and they are enjoying their everlasting dance. Boy how Kay loved to dance! You are all in our thoughts & prayers.
