    What an amazing lady!! Her smile and laugh was infectious and always made you feel welcome and loved. If you knew her, you loved her!! She was one of my favorites to be around. See you again some day Aunt Kay.

    Aunt Kay certainly was the life of every party. She wanted everyone to be happy and just enjoy being together…”can’t we all just get along?” She would say when us kids were snapping at each other.
    Childhood memories, with her in them, will always remain special to me. Her Mississippi mud cake, her contagious laughter, and ongoing smiles. Every hug would be as though she hadn’t seen you in years, even though she had just hugged you 30 minutes prior.
    She loved “Dad” (Uncle Rick) fiercely and I am sure she is laying a big ole smooch on him this morning!
    Kim, Anita, and Richard Bruce… you three were her world. I am pretty sure you never did anything wrong in her eyes…. As it should be.

    Prayers for peace and comfort during this time.
    I love you.
    And because Aunt Kay said I will always be “Linda Lee” no matter how old I am…
    Here is my 53 year old self signing off the only way Aunt Kay and Aunt Judy ever knew me…

    Kay always treated me like another son and knew me and most of us better than we know ourselves. I will miss her smile, jokes and her hand on her hip dancing. My deepest sympathy to all the family.

    To one of our dearest friends from days when we all raced at Chandler Raceway. We will always remember your contagious laughter and smile. Kay always had a new joke to tell every week which made everybody laugh. Remember the good times Richard and family and know that she is in heaven now. Love always – Barb and Leo
