My loving, funny, caring Aunt Kay You were thoughtful, kind and had a face of an Angel. I just spoke with you and we laughed, you helped me remember the words to a song we sang back & forth. I will miss you immensely however your kindness will live on in my heart. You are a very special Aunt to me. You spoke fondly of those around you and loved your family unconditionally. I just wished we weren´t the many miles apart. Now my sweet Aunt Kay, when I look up to the heavens after my sun sets over the ocean, that one sparkling twinkle star now has a new name it´s "Aunt Kay". I too will be in your company again one day, when we can laugh, feed the birds, run with our dogs and be with the family you so dearly love. Just know your love keeps us strong, you home now....no worries no pain just more smiles. I´ll miss you til I see your smile again.Love you, Cheryl
