Your Mom Kay was such a joy to be with. She often came with my Mother and I to Farmers Markets, a stroll on the beach, Fall Fair activites, birthday parties, or even a visit over curling and golf games! Lovely woman and we will cherish our times with her. Thinking of you all during this difficult time.

So sorry to learn of Kay's passing.
Kay was my late husband Cam's secretary at the high school. Cam thought the world of her. One of Kay's attributes was she could read Cam's writing for which he was eternally grateful.
Whenever I met Kay we enjoyed a beautiful chat. R.I.P.
