I worked with Kay for several years at Jennings and Four Seasons. What a lovely lady!

My Grandma inspired me in so many ways...her forgiving nature, her strength, her honesty and her sense of humor. I will miss everything about you Grandma but I will miss most are your hugs and the smile on your face when you saw us! I love you!!
