To Carol, Sharon and Fred – We are sorry to miss the memorial service of your mother.  We had hoped to bring our parents, Ted and AnnaMae, but they thought it would be too much for them.  We have so many memories of your parents and know that our parents counted yours as some of their dearest friends.  What a reunion that will be when they all are together in heaven!  Kay was truly a good and faithful servant of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Well done!
With love to you all,
Brian, Diane and Keith
