I enjoyed the time I spent with her and remember how we watched a few Penguin games together while she cheered on Kris Letang. I remember the good food I had while I attended a few celebrations at her house while I nibbled on the M&Ms she left out for guests. “Aunt Kay” will be deeply missed and I pray for all during this time.

She will be missed. 🙁

  13. I’m so glad our paths crossed in life. What a kind lady. She’ll be missed! Prayers for the family!
