    Chris and I are deeply saddened by your loss, Kay is one of the most beautiful and caring people we know and I’m sure we are not the only people who know this.
    She will always hold a special place in our hearts and memories!
    We, are blessed for knowing you both.

    Hello Bill. Sorry to hear about the loss of Kay. Not many people get to be married for over 60 years. I am happy that you had that special relationship for so long. And you were able to enjoy several years golfing, being with your family and enjoying the warm weather down south. Once again, I am very sorry for your loss.
