Oh Kay, you were one of the first people I met when I moved to Massachusetts! Our many weekend nights getting together in the summer and winter on the Cape. Getting together for weekends on Marco Island. So many fun times and memories with you and Gene. You are so missed already in the hearts of all those who love you. Gene, Ken, David and Christine, so very sorry for your loss.

Dear Gene, Ken, David and Christine. Our sympathy to you on Kay's passing. We were neighbors for over 40 years in Stoughton and caught up with each other here on the cape. A wonderful family and I'm sure she will be missed.
