    Kay was a second mom to me and one of my mom’s best friends. Her home was where all the neighbor kids hung out. We had a lot of great times, laughter and tears. I probably got in more trouble from Kay than I did from my own parents, right Robin? To my second family, Wally, Mike and Robin thank you for being there. I will miss your mom so much, and I am blessed she was part of my life. My mom and I wish we could have been there for you, but know that you are in our prayers.

    Love Always,

    Colleen and Darlene
