Kay was a fixture in our backyard softball games. When I say, "a fixture", I mean we enjoyed her humor and the life she brought to our ball game. I am so sorry to hear about her passing. There was no one quite like her. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family.

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My mother died suddenly in a car accident in her early 70s so I can understand the shock. Condolences to you and your family.
