Kay loved keeping in touch with her large family and wrote many letters to everyone! In later years she enjoyed board games especilly Scrabble and would invite you to join her in a game almost as soon as you walked in the door. She had 26 grandchildren and a ton of great-grands, anyone know the number let me know I will be glad to include it.


I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.
