We were very saddened to hear today of Kay's death. Kay was a truly wonderful person who was genuinely kind and caring to all, without regard to age, social standing, profession or any other of the usual barriers that often separate us. We met her over 40 years ago and were struck by her lovely, vibrant personality as well as obvious talent in making everything around her more beautiful. She never failed to ask about our family and children and take genuine interest. Kay never spoke about her religious beliefs to us but could not have been a better representative of Christ. Unfortunately we will not be able to attend her services as we no longer live in the area but will be thinking of her family and remembering her with kindest regards. Kay Duffy made this world a much better place. Peter and Rosa Stamile
