    Dear Paige
    Your mom was a woman of great strength. I can’t imagine having all the hardships and extreme trials that she endured. She was a wonderful and loving mom, and you brought her great joy-as did your brothers. We can only have faith that they are all together in heaven.
    I have covid and couldn’t be there for her services.
    But know I’ll keep you and all her family in my prayers.

    Paige, I’m so sorry for the loss of your precious mother, I loved Kay to pieces and always will. I’m sorry I can’t be there, but my husband and mother are both in the hospital, I know you understand that. I’m sorry for the entire family. Kay has went through a lot in her life, but she always held her head high and tried to enjoy life to the fullest. She will be dearly missed, but she is carrying on in heaven. You and the family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you.

    What a blessing we received by being there with Kay during her battle for life. We gained in closeness as friends and loved ones. No matter the course she made peace and restoration of personal relations seem effortless all the while enduring such pain. What an awesome testimony. Thank you Kay.
