I have known Kay as a teenager with my buddy Rick Rabner. I always enjoyed her sense of humor.

Aunt Kaye was extra special. She was the fun Aunt from California! Such a quick wit and always lots of laughs when you were with her. As a young child, I was mesmerized by her clinking charm bracelet, her beautiful presence and great style. I appreciated her intellect, sense of humor, and great faith. Forever loved and admired!

"Auntie Kaye" was so much fun, always enjoyed our visits with her in California or when she visited in Michigan. Always a splash of light and joy!
