Not sure what to say?

My deepest sympathies to Gary, Suzi, Morgan, Connor and to all of whom loved Kay.

I loved her dearly too. We were so certain that God weaved us into the fabric of one another's lives. I hold her as one of my most beloved friends. I will miss her integrity and the way she made me feel like the most cherished friend in the world. She was part best friend and part mentor. Her love and friendship was uncommon.

I have walked along side the Henson family through so much....

I met Kay 20 yrs ago in the elevator at East Pass Towers in Destin - her unit was 321 & mine 621. In those 20 yrs we had so many deep talks. We talked about everything - the loss of David. Gary's retirement. Greg's 1st diagnosis & treatment. His spreads in magazines & on HGTV - then his melanoma recurrence. Suzy's role as the best mother. Morgan's great style & huge heart. Sitting in the bleachers loving watching Connor play baseball. We talked about my kids - Michael &...

I feel so fortunate to have known Kay Henson. She was such a unique person who had an innate ability to connect on a deep level with almost no effort.

Gary, I'm sorry for your and your families loss. You are and have been in our prayers.

Gary, we are very sorry to hear of your loss. You are in our prayers. Roger and Audrey Ruggiero

There are no words sufficient to explain the depth of sincerity and love Kay brought to our lives. The world was richer for her life while she was on this earth, and she is now gracing heaven above. God speed Kay. I expect you won't rest in peace. You will be too busy watching over all of us until we meet again. I'm at peace knowing you are with your boys. No one could have a better friend or Mom than Kay. Nancy
